“You are not likely to find a better contemporary history of the world’s economy than this one.  It is hard to put down, but the greater joy is that it undoes myth after myth about neoliberalism’s inevitability and the neoclassical abstractions that economic history has little to do with the state any longer.  The state and class battles will continue, and had better, argues Professor Desai.”

Jeff Madrick, Editor, Challenge

“Desai’s book shatters the stale notions that characterise traditional international political economy. She has provided scholars with a fresh, compelling and forceful account of the US’s failed efforts to dominate the world order order.”
