The Rise and Fall of the Neoliberal Order

America and the World in the Free Market Era

Gary Gerstle

  • Offers the most complete history of the neoliberal order yet published, reconstructing both its rise and fall
  • Restores the fall of Communism and the end of the Cold War to their pivotal place in American history
  • Shows that neoliberalism originated as much on the Left (the New Left) as on the right, among individuals such as Paul Goodman, Stewart Brand, Steve Jobs, and Ralph Nader who were seeking ways to emancipate the self in an increasingly regulated and bureaucratized world
