Argues that far from passing Scotland by, as is so often claimed, neoliberalism has in fact become institutionalized there. This book details the negative effects of neoliberal policies on Scottish society. It presents an overview of the origin and rise of neoliberalism in the developed world.



Chapter nine is concerned with the Scottish manifestations of 'the happiness industry', showing how market-fundamentalist notions of individual responsibility now structure even the most seemingly innocuous attempts to resolve supposed attitudinal problems. Finally, chapter ten demonstrates that the limited extent to which devolved Scottish governments, particularly the present SNP administration, have been able to go beyond the boundaries of neoliberal orthodoxy has been a function of the peculiarities of party competition in Holyrood, rather than representing a fundamental disavowal of the existing order.
