by Jonathan Rutherford

"Soundings 39" explores some of the effects of neoliberal hegemony - internationally, in society, and in our heads - while also pointing to areas of resistance. Articles on China, Pakistan, Africa, the EU and BP engage with the global power of multinational companies and their supporting institutions. A second group of features looks at the deeply embedded nature of the structures of neoliberalism - in corporate responsibility rhetoric, in the sucking in of social networking sites into the corporate world, and in the steady movement towards privatisation in broadcasting. A third section looks at the 'broken society' debate, with discussion on the Cameron Tories, Britain's melancholia, binge drinking and violence against women.
