Against the New Myths of Our Time

In his most explicitly political work to date, Pierre Bourdieu
speaks out against the new myths of our time - especially those
associated with neo-liberalism - and offers a passionate defence of
the public interest. The withdrawal of the state from many areas of
social life in recent years - housing, health, social services,
etc. - has produced growing despair in the most deprived sections
of the population; the dismantling of public welfare in the name of
private enterprise, flexible markets and global competitiveness is
increasing the misery of those who have suffered most. In this
sharp, uncompromising attack on neo-liberalism and those who
champion it - from the IMF to the President of the Bundesbank, from
politicians to academic commentators - Bourdieu stands up for the
interests of the powerless and helps to give a voice to those
individuals, groups and social movements whose views are rarely
heard in the dominant media.



A powerful plea for a new internationalism which would seek to
defend the public interest and the social rights of ordinary people
against the new prophets of the marketplace, this important and
timely book by one of Europe's most outstanding intellectuals
deserves to be widely read.
