Editorial Reviews

"Phoebe Moore makes an important contribution to our understanding of the fundamental changes to International Political Economy over recent years. Her impressive analyses of education policy linked to 'employability' as a means of producing forms of subjectivity that sustain neoliberal reforms even against their economic failures will be critical tools in the hands of scholars, researchers, organizers and activists. Her case studies underscore the convergences occasioned by neoliberal policies even in the contexts of diverse national and cultural experiences. This book makes a compelling case for bringing work, labour, and production 'back in' to the study of International Political Economy." -- Matt Davies, Newcastle University, UK  "This book provides one of the richest and most systematic comparisons of skills revolutions in three countries of east and west. Phoebe Moore reintroduces brilliantly the International Political Economy of Work into the literature on the employability and skills." -- Joohee Lee, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Ewha Womans University, Korea
