About this book
‘This is a timely book on an important topic, and one in which distinguished scholars offer lucid insights that will endure for many years.’
–Professor Richard English, Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland
‘This is a major study of one of the greatest challenges that western democracies face today – the rise of authoritarian populism and its threat to liberal democracy. The contributors provide profound analyses of the contemporary sources of authoritarian populism together with imaginative, and often surprising, suggestions for how democracies might respond to the challenge. It is essential reading for all of us but especially for our political elites – who need to take notice, and act accordingly.’–Professor Anthony Heath, Nuffield College, Oxford, UK
