"This is a compelling, timely and thought-provoking collection. It brings into contact a range of phenomena often considered in isolation, and subjects them to sustained critical-geographical exploration. The materials covered here cross worlds and scales - the Global South and the Global North; from the psychotherapist's couch to ethnodevelopment in Ecuador - and thereby reveal the entangled spaces, roles and subjectivities of professionals and activists under neoliberalism. It is essential reading for any critical scholar concerned about the extending and mutating reach of neoliberalism." Chris Philo, Professor of Geography, University of Glasgow "If there is any lingering doubt that geographers need to think about how the local, the state, and the global are interconnected, it should be dispelled in this provocative and compelling collection, a fresh approach to the everywhere but elusive concept of neoliberalism. Challenging us to think about the broad ramifications for professionalism and local activism, these authors are determined to make a difference to the real lives of people engaged in working the spaces of neoliberalism as they re-write subjectivity, local knowlege, sexuality, democracy and political agency. We can definitely add another notch to our understanding of the world." Audrey Kobayashi, Professor of Geography, Queen's University, Ontario
