Neo-liberalism has become a bit of buzz word, replacing postmodernity (although the two are crucially interlinked). So two books and a film which provide excellent in-roads into the topic.
First: Foulcault’s lectures on the “Birth of Biopolitics”, given in 1978-79, particularly lectures 4,5,9,10,11. He has the remarkable power of being able to condense the gist of neo-liberalism into one sentence: “more state, less government”. He equally traces the emergence of neo-liberalism as the obverse side to the Frankfurt School: a response to Nazism, which was taken to be the solution to the political-economic constellation of pre-WWII Germany.
Two: David Harvey’s A Brief History of Neo-Liberalism. Read alongside The Condition of Postmodernity one can trace the link between the two.
Three: the documentary Catastroika. It’s artfulness under the circumstances merely contributes to the terror of what it reports:
