This is a practical book providing valuable reporting and facts on populism in politics during a divisive time in the world. The author takes a close look at the dynamics that exist between populism and the society in general. From Farage in Britain to Podemos in Spain, Syriza in Greece, Sarkozy, Orbán, Hofer or Duda, the book takes us on a journey to understand how populist characters have successfully challenged established elites, mainstream parties and experts in recent years and forever redefined politics from a left-right two-party system with shared democratic values to a split multi-party system with deeply rooted nationalistic and revolutionary principles. The old left-tight, Socialist-Conservative, Labour-Tories, Democrats-Republicans divisions have now given place to new divides: Brexiteers-Remoaners, Trump-Sanders, racists/bigots-world citizens, and populists-unifiers. The series will try to answer the question of the future of populism. Will it keep rising or eventually come to a halt? What comes after populism?
