Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book challenges the idea of post-ideological consensus and offers a fresh perspective on the current state of political ideologies. Ideology and Politics presents an accessible account of a new era of ideological politics, where the dominant neo-liberalism has spawned a diverse global range of 'ideologies of opposition'. It situates these radical frameworks of change and protest in relation to more traditional 'anti' ideologies and seeks to re-establish the relevance of ideologies for political action in the contemporary world.
