Abstract

Ideas matter. Jamie Peck’s long-term interest in neoliberalism and neoliberalization has led him to track and make sense of their origins.As he mentions in the preface to this book, he originally did not care about neoliberalism, but in his youth he encountered the policy consequences of Thatcherism. One can only accept the fact that Mrs Thatcher is a hero of critical urban research, as so many scholars have had to face, cope with, adapt to or combat her regime and her ideas. Peck has written a major book to understand the story of the groups who supported and elaborated neoliberal ideas over the course of the twentieth century (...).
