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

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
