Undoing the Demos book cover
James E. Dobson, Lecturer, Department of English, Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies, and in Writing

Wendy Brown’s newest book is concerned with a global change in thinking that has turned everyone into either an investor or an entrepreneur and has introduced economic thinking into almost every region of everyday life, even the most private. Brown is one of our foremost political theorists, and her persuasively argued analysis of how we have unwittingly become homo oeconomicus provides us with crucial resources for rethinking democracy in our contemporary moment.
