Prof. Anderson’s book offers a critique of free-market ideology. Combining historical analysis and philosophical rigor, Anderson illuminates how the managerial/administrative class has come to exercise power unaccountably over workers while espousing individualist libertarianism that obscures power relations. In an era when labor issues are all too often ignored in the academy, Anderson’s work underscores the necessity of freedom and dignity for all people.
