Review of “The Rise and Fall of the Neoliberal Order” by Gary Gerstle
I didn’t know what neoliberalism was until I read this book. Now, I understand its origins and why it isn’t even a new idea. The author does a great job explaining the political oscillations of American society in the last century in 432 pages, although the last 50 or so are references.
The grammar and punctuation are good, although some of the sentences ran a little long — when I forget what the subject is, that’s a little long. However, it was a lot better than another book I recently reviewed. The material completely supports the title and there are few, if any, divergences. It is well written.
There are thorough reviews available, so I’ll finish my review by saying that it was an easy read and I didn’t want it to end.
