"The Twilight of Equality" analyses the politics of the 1990s, the decade when neoliberalism free market economics became gospel. Through a series of political case studies, Duggan shows how neoliberal goals have been pursued through racial codes, populist campaigns, culture wars, and sex panics demonstrating conclusively that progressive arguments that separate identity politics and economic policy, cultural politics and affairs of state can only fail.
