Populism was introduced in Greece by Andreas Papandreou, founder and leader of PASOK, a nominally socialist party that posed in Greece’s political arena as the complete antithesis of democratic liberalism. This chapter offers an empirical analysis of populist emergence through the construction of the categories of ‘the people’ and ‘the establishment’, symbolic narrative, and mass mobilization. Political entrepreneurship, charismatic leadership, political polarization, and the forging of a populist discourse are only some of the topics encountered herein.
