    This book - the first comprehensive transatlantic history of the rise of neoliberal politics - presents a surprising answer. Based on archival research and interviews with leading participants in the movement, Masters of the Universe traces the ascendancy of neoliberalism from the academy of interwar Europe to supremacy under Reagan and Thatcher and in the decades since. Daniel Stedman Jones argues that there was nothing inevitable about the victory of free-market politics.

    What disappointed you about Masters of the Universe?

    Daniel Stedman Jones does a decent job in diving deeply into the history and ideas. The problem is that time after time after time his bias, he is part of Demos, shines far too brightly. Too often it results in questionable characterizations of historical events. If you're looking for a different viewpoint on Hayek, Friedman and others you will find it here. The problem is the accuracy of its conclusions are questionable.
