Reviews

  • Compelling ... Eatwell and Goodwin do a good job of demolishing lazy stereotypes about Trump and Brexit supporters being almost exclusively white and old ... Measured and insightful

    Sunday Telegraph
  • A fascinating new study ... the authors analyse the long-term demographic and socioeconomic trends shaping our age of upheaval. The attraction of this book lies in its cool, dispassionate tone. The authors intend to explain and inform rather than polemicise

    Jason Cowley, The Sunday Times
  • Intelligent, counterintuitive ... [ranging] far beyond Brexit and Britain ... they put a parochial debate in a much bigger context

    Economist
  • Valuable ... A finely organised, lucid explanation of the elements presently constituting the most dynamic political movements in Europe and the US

    John Lloyd, Financial Times
  • A useful corrective... it demolishes the myth that young people aren't attracted to the populist right

    Sarah Baxter, The Sunday Times
  • A reality check to any clinging to the hope that populism is a passing political squall ... Goodwin is one of the few academics to be vindicated by the political trends of the past few years. With a forensic grasp of the detail, Eatwell and Goodwin show how commentators have succumbed to "stereotypes that correspond with their outlook" rather than evidence-based conclusions

    Asa Bennett, Telegraph
  • Convincing, powerful and very definitely worth a read

    Robert Colvile, Director of CPS Think Tank
  • An important and stimulating book .. well written, well argued, highly accessible to the lay reader, and mercifully free of political science jargon ... it leaves room for optimism for the future of our country

    Roger Liddle, Progress
  • An invaluable guide to the new politics of revolt ... Eatwell and Goodwin draw attention to the historic problem that liberalism has faced in accepting democracy. They give us the theoretical framework to understand national populism's rise ... Compelling

    Jon Holbrook, Spiked
  • Informative and often compelling, providing clarity around a number of key debates within political science and political theory [...] Usefully, they provide copious evidence that rightwing populism has been a long time in the making.

    Will Davies, Guardian
