Abstract

Contemporary Greece has caught the world’s attention for both the sheer size of its economic crisis and the complexity of its political troubles, including the recent rise of radical and extremist parties. Populism, too, has been a fascinating, let alone puzzling, phenomenon, currently on the rise in many parts of Europe and beyond. Post-authoritarian Greece presents arguably the most compelling, almost ideal-typical, case worldwide for the empirical study of the emergence, development, and outcomes of populism within a liberal democratic context.
