Autorentext

Gavin Fridell is Canada Research Chair in International Development Studies and an associate professor at Saint Mary's University. He is also the author of Fair Trade Coffee: The Prospects and Pitfalls of Market-Driven Social Justice. Martijn Konings is a senior lecturer and Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow in the Department of Political Economy at the University of Sydney.



Klappentext

This volume assesses the growing role of popular icons in the construction of a culture that appears to incorporate a critical attitude towards the capitalist experience while, in fact, legitimizing the neoliberal character of the modern world.
