Official URL:


In recent years, the West has seen a rising tide of populist and anti-political feeling. Figures like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage have gained power by distancing themselves from the establishment and portraying politics itself as the enemy of the people. And it's not just them increasingly, the media and politicians of all stripes hurl the word ideological as an insult, tie themselves in knots to avoid mentioning the working class, and champion the depoliticising of key decision-making. In this book, Eliane Glaser one of the early commentators to call attention to this new wave of populism takes stock of how we got here and where we re going. At the heart of this is a vital question: Is the death of politics simply an inevitable sign of the times, going hand in hand with climate change, technological development and postmodern malaise? Or is it the intentional result of right-wing engineering?
