Turning his back on neoliberalism at exactly the moment that its advocates were in their pomp, trumpeting the end of history and the supposedly unstoppable spread of liberal values across the globe, Grays was a lone voice of scepticism. The thinking he criticised here would lead ultimately to the invasion of Iraq. Today, its folly might seem obvious to all, but as this edition of Enlightenments Wake shows, John Gray has been trying to warn us for some fifteen years - the rest of us are only now catching up with him.
