"Andrew Gamble asks exactly the right question: have we bested the tempest of 2008 or busted the neoliberal growth model? He gives us four possible answers to this question, none of them comforting, all of them plausible. Crisis without End? is the new benchmark for sober and scholarly assessment of the (supposedly) post crisis world." - Mark Blyth, Brown University and author of Austerity.
"Undoubtedly the best book I have read on the crisis - seamlessly drawing together analytical insights from a wonderfully rich career. This is essential reading for all those who have lived through the crisis and especially for those who would claim to be leading us out of it. Its central message and clear warnings are simply too important to be ignored." - Colin Hay, Sciences Po, Paris
"Thoughtful and thought-provoking, Andrew Gamble explains lucidly how the disagreements about the current economic crisis between realistic pragmatists and their radical critics are grounded in murky data and contestable conjectures. Providing authoritative instruction in some of the most consequential political struggles of our time, he wisely accepts that in the twilight only Hegel's sharp-eyed owl discerns dawn from dusk." - Peter J. Katzenstein, Cornell University
"Andrew Gamble's contribution to the study of political economy is second to none. Crisis Without End? is a crowning achievement: wise, pellucid and challenging. Gamble is no Doctor Pangloss, but he shows that, given courage and skill, we can master events instead of allowing them to master us." - David Marquand, Oxford University
"Theoretically informed and empirically grounded, and taking its subject as seriously as it deserves, this is the most penetrating account yet of the ongoing crisis of neoliberal capitalism." - Wolfgang Streeck, Max Planck Institute and The New School for Social Research
"A sobering analysis of the structural crisis of the neo-liberal order. Andrew Gamble grapples with remarkable dexterity and erudition with the big issue it confronts: no hegemon any longer able to manage the system and no credible political alternatives as yet able effectively to challenge it." - Loukas Tsoukalis, Athens University
