A crucial new guide to one of the most urgent political phenomena of our
time: the rise of national populismAcross the West, there is a rising
tide of people who feel excluded, alienated from mainstream politics,
and increasingly hostile towards minorities, immigrants and neo-liberal
economics. Many of these voters are turning to national populist
movements, which have begun to change the face of Western liberal
democracy, from the United States to France, Austria to the UK. This
radical turn, we are told, is a last howl of rage from an aging
electorate on the verge of extinction.
Their leaders are fascistic and their politics anti-democratic; their existence a side-show to liberal democracy. But this version of events, as Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin show, could not be further from the truth. Written by two of the foremost experts on fascism and the rise of national populism, this lucid and deeply-researched book is a vital guide to our transformed political landscape.
Challenging conventional wisdoms, Eatwell and Goodwin make a compelling case for serious, respectful engagement with the supporters and ideas of national populism - not least because it is a tide that won't be stemmed anytime soon.
