Synopsis

takes on the current neoliberal offensive against public goods. It contains arguments from different areasthe environment, health care, the media, educationthat the market is doing a poor job of meeting expectations in these areas. The notion of public good being defended emphasizes the importance of agreement on and participation in public good. . Not for Sale: In Defense of Public Goods contains a variety of essays aimed at developing a timely philosophical defense of public goods against neo-liberal criticisms. The defense proceeds on both a conceptual level with essays treating such concepts as collective action, collective provision, common property, intellectual property and a substantive level with essays treating issues such as health, education, welfare, environment, media, cities, and the prison industrial complex. The scope of the book is broad-- aiming to encompass the main questions that crop up in contemporary controversies about public goods-- and should be of interest to both scholars and students of philosophy, the social sciences, law, policy studies.

The anthology, consisting mostly of original essays, includes authors such as Richard Rorty, Iris Young, Angela Davis, Robert McChesney, Subcommadante Marcos, Nel Nodding, Stanley Aronowitz, and Nancy Folbre. It is suitable for upper division courses in any of these areas and is designed to be student friendly as well as current.
