Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin present a thorough and evidence based analysis of the success of ‘national populism’ in the United States and Europe. They conclude that national populism has arrived mainly due to factors that have either been present for much of the past, and/or are set to continue: e.g. tensions between national democracy and economic globalisation; widespread suspicion of ‘elites’; declining trust in major political parties; and a sense of threat to culture and ‘way of life’ from immigrants. With some boldness, the authors use evidence to challenge simple narratives of national populism as an alternative for economically marginalised citizens with racist views. Their basic conclusion is that national populism is likely to be part of the political landscape for the foreseeable future, as its supporting factors will not go away soon. Most readers are likely will find sections of the book that both support and challenge their views.
