About this product
- DescriptionNeoliberal globalization is understood to have a corrosive effect on the state. Reductions in ecomic regulatory capacities combined with an ideological attack on the public necessity of social spending has left many with the impression that the state is a weakened institution, at best. This book argues that despite popular claims to the contrary, global capitalism requires state institutional authority, but the legitimation of this authority is increasingly tied to cultural rather than ecomic means. Canada and Quebec are presented in historical comparative context as examples of how neoliberal states achieve global political ecomic integration while relying on cultural legitimation to maintain social policies working to mitigate social changes resulting from increased global integration.
- Author BiographyCory Blad, Ph.D. (2006) in Sociology, University of Tennessee, is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Manhattan College. His research focuses on the nexus of neoliberalism and cultural politics with particular emphasis on the role of state institutions.
