Summary
"Today, Western democratic societies are facing a serious threat from both populist parties and social movements. Not only the debates in the course of the presidential elections in the US or UKs Brexit, but also the critical role the National Front will play in the upcoming presidential elections in France, and populist tendencies all over Europe as well as populist regimes in Hungary or Poland pose serious threats to the democratic culture of Western societies and its core institution citizenship. Against the background of these developments the volume attends to serious lacunae in the debate on populism in the social sciences, particularly in sociology. First, the chapters included contribute to clarifying conceptual uncertainties of what populism actually means; second, they analyse the ways populism develops and turns into a strong political force; third, they thoroughly discuss the most critical aspects of recent populist debates as security, social exclusion, migration, religion, gender, and law."--Provided by publisher.
