Críticas:

A superb book . . . [Duggan] reveals just how much the far-reaching neoliberal revolution has been advanced, at every step of the way, through insidious appeals to race, gender, and sexuality.--Andrew Ross, author of The Celebration Chronicles

Brilliantly bold and coherent. [Duggan] rebuts the puritanical and the implicit, and makes a potent case for various hues of the unrepresented or underrepresented in American politics."--Akinbola E. Akinwumi, Politicalaffairs.net

"Duggan's well-reasoned argument is that true progressive change must occur not in parts but as a unified whole."--Publishers Weekly

"Finally, a cogent and hard-hitting attack on the cultural politics of neo-liberalism . . . We need Duggan's book, now more than ever, to point the way to new progressive politics, real social justice and a revitalized public intellectual sphere."--Judith Halberstam, author of Female Masculinity

"Lisa Duggan's insightful, carefully argued, and passionate book finally makes sense of neo-liberals' rise to power in the 1990s . . . Duggan leaves us with a brilliant analysis of where we are now and a map for how to get to a better, more just place."--Tricia Rose, author of Longing to Tell: Black Women Talk About Sexuality and Intimacy

Reseña del editor:

An analysis of the political and cultural agendas that have underpinned the success of neoliberalism

What did a panic over sexual content in a women s studies conference have to do with one state university system s budgets? Why did the homeowner supporters of the property tax revolt in California sign on to a petition that gave most of the tax relief benefits to businesses? Award-winning historian Lisa Duggan examines the links between cultural and economic politics in recent U.S. history in The Twilight of Equality?, a book that reveals why progressive arguments that separate identity politics and economic policy can only fail.

Duggan . . . offers a thoughtful study of how ongoing, bipartisan sponsorship of free market economics has eclipsed social democracy and culture over the past 20 years. Publishers Weekly

In writing this superb book, Lisa Duggan has done a great service to every thinking person in America. She reveals just how much the far-reaching neoliberal revolution has been advanced. Andrew Ross, author of The Celebration Chronicles: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Property Value in Disney s New Town

Duggan leaves us with a brilliant analysis of where we are now and a map for how to get to a better, more just place. Tricia Rose, author of Longing to Tell: Black Women Talk about Sexuality and Intimacy

The Twilight of Equality presents us with an intellectual yet highly readable work on the rise of neoliberalism in the United States. Alexa Prussin, Girlfriends Magazine
