Many Faces of Populism : Current Perspectives, Hardback Book

Many Faces of Populism : Current Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Dwayne Woods, Barbara Wejnert

Part of the Research in Political Sociology series


Populism comes in many guises. Both Berlusconi's personalization of politics and the Northern League's antiimmigrant regionalist movement are viewed as examples of the phenomenon of populism.

A type of leftwing populism embodied by Hugo Chavez swept across Latin America.

Insurgent and antisystem movements and parties in places as different as the Netherlands, India, Norway, Thailand, Russia and the United States have experienced what have been labeled populists movements.

Such varied manifestations beg the question: what is populism?

The objective of this edited volume is to provide an answer by examining "the many faces of populism." The unifying element across the different explorations of the phenomenon of populism is that there is a shared genus that allows for a typology of the different faces of populism and a demarcation of what is not a form of populism.
