Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy, a Pelican Book, written by Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin and read by Matthew Goodwin.  

A crucial new guide to one of the most urgent political phenomena of our time: the rise of national populism. 

Across the West, there is a rising tide of people who feel excluded, alienated from mainstream politics and increasingly hostile towards minorities, immigrants and neoliberal economics. Many of these voters are turning to national populist movements, which have begun to change the face of Western liberal democracy, from the United States to France, Austria to the UK.  

This radical turn, we are told, is a last howl of rage from an aging electorate on the verge of extinction. Their leaders are fascistic and their politics antidemocratic, their existence a sideshow to liberal democracy.  

But this version of events, as Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin show, could not be further from the truth.  

Written by two of the foremost experts on fascism and the rise of national populism, this lucid and deeply researched audiobook is a vital guide to our transformed political landscape. Challenging conventional wisdoms, Eatwell and Goodwin make a compelling case for serious, respectful engagement with the supporters and ideas of national populism - not least because it is a tide that won't be stemmed anytime soon.

Very repetitive

The book read like an ok graduate thesis. Very repetitive. The author keeps saying the same thing in every chapter. Seems that he is saying the obvious. The book offers little if any examination of the differences between national populist movements in Europe at the moment. Worst of all is the extremely boring amd monotonous reading.
