Summary

This collection, which can serve as an introduction to the field of populism, provides an array of interdisciplinary approaches to populist mobilizations, theories, meanings, and effects. In so doing, it rejects essentialized ideas regarding what populism is or is not. Rather, it explores the political, social, and economic conditions that are conducive for the emergence of movements labelled populist, the rationalities and affective tenor of those movements, the political issues pertaining to the relationship between populists and elites, and the relationship between populist groups and political pluralism. Grappling with accord and discord in assumptions and methodologies, the book will appeal to scholars of sociology, political science, communication and cultural studies interested in populism, social movements, citizenship, and democracy.
