Reviews

"Simon Reid-Henry has written a superbly informed and riveting historical analysis of our contemporary era, which opened in the 1970s and, as he brilliantly demonstrates, continues to transform the premises of Western democracies." --Charles S. Maier, Harvard University
"Exploding the myth that current troubles are due to an attack by malignant outsiders on a 'liberal order' crafted in 1945, Simon Reid-Henry shows that our current travails make sense as part of the self-conscious turn by mainstream elites to a neoliberal understanding of democracy in the 1970s -- and the intensification of their mistake after the fall of communism in the 1990s. Brilliantly, Reid-Henry calls for the salvation of democracy from the choices of its own leaders if it is to survive." --Samuel Moyn, Yale University
"Supremely readable and illuminating."--The Bookseller

"[A] colossal history of the last half-century." --Sunday Times

"A monumental and nuanced history of the past half-century." --Irish Times
