"Daniel Drache and Marc Froese have written an essential primer on modern populist authoritarianism. They unpack its origins, its internal dynamics, and its likely evolution, demonstrating why it poses a mortal threat to liberal democracy. We can't defend the freedoms and institutions we treasure if we don't accurately understand why they're in danger. This book is a vital contribution to that defense." -- Thomas Homer-Dixon, executive director, Cascade Institute, author of Commanding Hope: The Power We Have to Renew a World in Peril
"Written by political scientists Daniel Drache of York University and Marc Froese of Burman University in Lacombe, this engaging and disturbing book is a warning that "the past decade will be remembered by historians for the fact that the populist insurgency held a knife to the throat of liberal democracy and got away with it." -- Alberta Views
