The SAGE Handbook of Neoliberalism


April 2018 | 577 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Over the last two decades, ‘neoliberalism’, once a term largely used in economics, has emerged as a key concept within a range of social science disciplines including sociology, political science, human geography, anthropology, political economy, and cultural studies. 

The SAGE Handbook of Neoliberalism 
showcases the cutting edge of contemporary scholarship in this field by bringing together a team of global experts. Across seven key sections, the handbook explores the different ways in which neoliberalism has been understood and the key questions about the nature of neoliberalism: 

Part 1: Perspectives
Part 2: Sources
Part 3: Variations and Diffusions
Part 4: The State
Part 5: Social and Economic Restructuring
Part 6: Cultural Dimensions
Part 7: Neoliberalism and Beyond

This handbook is the key reference text for scholars and graduate students engaged in the growing field of neoliberalism.
