HENRY GIROUX has a new book, published by City Lights Books, co-written with Brad Evans, DISPOSABLE FUTURES: THE SEDUCTION OF VIOLENCE IN THE AGE OF SPECTACLE. As we have come to expect with his work, it is as timely as it is deeply insightful.
Echoing Spinoza, he asks:  “How do we learn to desire that which we should find patently oppressive?  In what ways is our servitude presented to us as though it were our salvation?”
Neoliberalism is not merely an economic system, but a cultural apparatus and pedagogy that are instrumental in forming a new mass sensibility, a new condition for the widespread acceptance of the capitalist system, even the general belief in its eternity.  Seeking to hide its ideological and constructed nature, neoliberal ideology attempts through its massive cultural apparatuses to produce an unquestioned common sense that hides its basic assumptions so as to prevent them from being questioned.

Henry A. Giroux currently holds the McMaster University Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest in the English and Cultural Studies Department and the Paulo Freire Chair in Critical Pedagogy at The McMaster Institute for Innovation & Excellence in Teaching & Learning. He also is a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Ryerson University. His most recent books include  Zombie Politics in the Age of Casino Capitalism;  Dangerous Thinking in the Age of the New Authoritarianism; Youth in Revolt: Reclaiming a Democratic Future;  America's Educational Deficit and the War on Youth; Neoliberalism's War on Higher Education.
