TitleCultural backlash : Trump, Brexit, and authoritarian populism / Pippa Norris, Ronald Inglehart
ImprintCambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2019
Descript xiv, 540 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm


Authoritarian populist parties have advanced in many countries, and entered government in states as diverse as Austria, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland. Even small parties can still shift the policy agenda, as demonstrated by UKIP's role in catalysing Brexit. Drawing on new evidence, this book advances a general theory why the silent revolution in values triggered a backlash fuelling support for Authoritarian-Populist parties and leaders in the US and Europe. The conclusion highlights the dangers of this development and what could be done to mitigate the risks to liberal democracy
