This is an online event.
The peaceful end of the Cold War and the rise of economic neoliberalism are two of the most consequential developments in contemporary history. Yet the connections between the two have largely been ignored until now. In this pathbreaking book, historian (and U of T alumnus) Fritz Bartel explores the links, showing how the economic difficulties of the 1970s and '80s transformed the economic and geopolitical landscape.
