An outstanding book. . . Michael Peters provides an excellent critical survey of several major twentieth century French thinkers who either respond to or play against poststructuralist ideas and values as they grapple with political challenges of neoliberalism, globalization, and the rise of a knowledge economy . . . very readable and theoretically important. -- Timothy Luke, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Peters provocatively challenges many misreadings of poststructural (and postmodern) writings on political and cultural analysis. He shows the relation and divergences of this writing to Marxism and finally, provides ways in which to seriously rethink the political in contemporary life. Poststructuralism, Marxism, and Neoliberalism is well-written, lucid in argument, and insightful in how it moves the philosophical discourses into policy and political analysis. -- Tom Popkewitz, University of Wisconsin, Madison
