John B. Judis - The Populist Explosion: How the Great Recession Transformed American and European Politics

Selected by The New York Times as one of “Six Books to Help Understand Trump’s Win,” this primer by the former editor of The New Republic illuminates the resurgence of populism on both the right and the left. Finding the roots of today’s movement in the 1890s, Judis, author of books including The Folly of Empire and Genesis, puts both the election of Donald Trump and the outpouring of support for Bernie Sanders in historical context.  Yet as recent elections in nations ranging from Greece to Britain to Switzerland show, populism is also a global phenomenon, and Judis links the rejection of the neoliberal agenda to the 2008 financial crisis and other worldwide events.
