Arrived on time and well-packaged. The book itself is quite good, it is very rich in content and has a rather modern approach to displaying concepts and ideas on paper. It comes with free access to an online companion site.

Neoliberalism has failed. Socialism is not dead. China - communist country - is now the beacon of hope for the world.
After Iceland's banking system collapsed under the weight of debt, and the UK used anti-terrorism laws to freeze Icelandic assets trapped in London, Iceland was forced to go to the people who gave a categorical No to the massive interest repayments. The result was the nationalisation of its three major banks - even if two were privatised again soon after, a default to the creditors, jail for some of the bankers, and a resounding defeat for right-wing politicians. And now Iceland is looking like a country that no longer trusts the governments of the right.
Perhaps it is only left-leaning governments that can manage the economy successfully - Venezuela, Norway, China.
The right still advocates libertarianism, but it's no longer got much appeal.
This book is so lame. There is no chapter on democracy. Surely democracy is a political ideology?
I just hope that this book is not being used in schools and tertiary colleges. It is so misleading.
