About this book

In the midst of the current financial crisis, John Gray revisits his brilliant polemic against the forces of global capitalism and deregulation. Written over ten years ago, False Dawn is a remarkably prescient book, sharply criticising the greed and unsustainable economic practices which have proved to be the seeds of a world-wide recession. In a substantial new chapter Gray considers how the economic landscape has shifted in a decade, and asks the crucial question: where do we go from here?

"A brilliant polemic against what he calls the `utopian' effort to create a global free market [...] a work of impassioned intellectual history and political and moral persuasion."
- International Herald Tribune
