'Callinicos presents a fundamentalist leftist critique of "third way philosophy", and argues that international protests against global capitalism provide the model for the future development of the left. Think of Callinicos as a somewhat more cerebral and decidedly more hardline Naomi Klein.' The Bookseller
'Callinicos's short book is a goldmine. In the space available he offers analysis of, among other things, economic globalisation, the "IT revolution" and its role in the recent US boom, the limits (and possibilities) of state action, the "new world order" and the various "humanitarian" wars of interventions of recent years, the "moral agenda" within Third Way politics, and trends towards "global governance". In each case he displays an immense grasp of a wide range of sources and presents often complex arguments in an accessible manner ... Callinicos's book should become an essential part of our armour - buy it, read it, use it.' The Socialist Review
'[A] theoretical critique of the Blairite model of modernisation is offered by Alex Callinicos in Against the Third Way, which is unforgiving of those who seek to blur the distinctions between left and right.' Mark Perryman, New Statesman
'This is not just [a] book about ideas but about the political economy and sociology of capitalism underlying them.' Millennium
