Socialism Today - What the market really means (1220 words)
Dark Victory, first published in 1994, is mainly about the global impact of Reaganism and neo-liberalism in the 1980s, although this new edition includes an epilogue that outlines the reasons behind the implosion of the Asian Tigers' in 1997.
The authors of Dark Victory tend to put too much emphasis on globalisation as an ideology that happened to become a dominant force when a political elite "came to power on the back of an increasingly conservative middle-class social base, at the same time that the corporate establishment was deserting the liberal-Keynesian consensus".
