Brexit, Donald Trump, and the Rise of Post-modern Conservatism Across the Globe

  • Matthew McManus
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Classical Liberalism book series (PASTCL)


This chapter analyses post-modern conservatism in practice. It opens and concludes with some highly general considerations. In between are concrete examinations of post-modern conservatism in the United States, the United Kingdom, Poland, Hungary, and Italy. There are also some ruminations on where else post-modern conservatism might be emerging, such as Brazil. The chapter concludes that it would be mistaken to conclude that this movement is simply a contingent development which will quickly vanish, as it has won major political victories in the past several years.
