Higher Education After Neoliberalism lays bare the corruption behind neoliberalism which has led to war on democracy. Giroux reveals how neoliberal policies and practices, which include privatisation and deregulation, have reshaped radically the mission and practice of higher education. The author charts an inspired, clear-minded course of action out of the dark wood of market-driven educational policy. The book provides a powerful background for educators, students and concerned citizens to understand how higher education is being corrupted.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Professor Giroux has focused his keen intellect on the hostile corporate takeover of higher education in North America. . . . He is relentless in his defense of a society that requires its citizenry to place its cultural, political, and economic institutions in context s o t hey can be interrog ated and held truly accountable. We are fortunate to have such a prolific writer and deep thinker to challenge us all." -Karen Lewis, President, Chicago Teachers Union "No one has been better than Henry Giroux at analyzing the many ways in wh ich neoliberalism, with its v i cious and p redatory excesses, has damaged the American economy and undermined its democratic processes. Now, as Giroux brilliantly explains, it is threatening one of the nation's proudest and most important achievements-its system of higher education." -Bob Herbert, Distinguished Senior Fellow at Demos and former op-ed columnist for the New York Times "Henry Giroux remains the critical voice of a generation. . . . He dares us to reevaluate the significance of public pedagogy as integral to any viable notion of democratic participation and social responsibility. Anybody who is remotely interested in the plight of future generations must read this book." -Dr. Brad Evans, Director, Histories of Violence website
