How can you fight something if you don’t know it exists? We live under an ideology that preys on every aspect of our lives: education, employment, healthcare and leisure; our relationships and mental wellbeing; even the planet we inhabit. So pervasive has it become that it seems unavoidable. But trace it back to its roots, and we discover that neoliberalism was conceived, propagated and concealed by the powerful few. It's time to bring it into the light – and to find an alternative worth fighting for. Environmental campaigner George Monbiot's previous book is Regenesis: Feeding the World without Devouring the Planet. This latest is co-authored by Peter Hutchison, filmmaker, New York Times author, educator and activist.

Price: £11.00
