Summary:
This book, written by a prominent German political scientist and specialist for political theory and comparative government, analyses right-wing populism as a topical theme of postmodern party systems in Europe and the United States. The author concludes that right-wing populist parties, such as Action for Germany (AfD) in Germany, may not only be an expression of but also a solution to topical problems of democracy in Western systems of government. He introduces the concept of neo-democracy as a contrast to the notion of post-democracy -- Provided by publisher.
