All the idiocies of an idiotic era, collected and mocked between two attractively designed covers. Or: An intellectual history of a decade in which it was a very bad time to be an intellectual.

Here is the first and longest excerpt from the book. It was the cover story for The Nation for October 30, 2000.
The chapter about the blindness of cultural studies has been revised, rewritten, and reprinted as one of the excellent Prickly Paradigm series.
Another excerpt appeared in the Industry Standard for October 16, 2000. It was called “Karl Marx’s Turnkey Solution” and it was about red-baiting in management theory (IBM is communist!) as well as the use of thinly disguised Marxist language (deregulation is inevitable because of the laws of history!) by certain New Economy theorists. Unfortunately, the Industry Standard crashed with the dot-coms, and its archives are no longer available online.
There was also an excerpt in the New Statesman for January 8, 2001 called “Markets R Us.” It was very attractively illustrated, but you have to pay them in order to read it online.
