The Rise of Post-Modern Conservatism : Neoliberalism, Post-Modern Culture, and Reactionary Politics, Hardback Book

The Rise of Post-Modern Conservatism : Neoliberalism, Post-Modern Culture, and Reactionary Politics Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Classical Liberalism series

Hardback

Description

This book is designed as a timely analysis of the rise of post-modern conservatism in many Western countries across the globe.

It provides a theoretical overview of post-modernism, why post-modern conservatism emerged, what distinguishes it from other variants of conservatism and differing political doctrines, and how post-modern conservatism governs in practice.

First developing a unique genealogy of conservative thought, arguing that the historicist and irrationalist strains of conservatism were ripe for mutation into post-modern form under the right social and cultural conditions, then providing a new unique theoretical framework to describe the conditions for the emergence of post-modern conservatism, The Rise of Post-modern Conservatism applies its theoretical framework to a concrete analysis of the politics of the day.

Ultimately, it aims to help us understand the emergence and rise of identity oriented alt right movements and their "populist" spokesmen particularly in the United States, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Poland, and now Italy.
