      A slim yet important book that explains “where democracy ends and populist peril begins”. • What Is Populism? is published by Penguin. To order a copy for £ (RRP £) go to. Today “populism” is seen as a frightening thing, a term pundits use to describe the racist philosophy of Donald Trump and European extremists. But this is a mistake. The real story of populism is an account of enlightenment and liberation; it is the story of American democracy itself, of its ever-widening promise of a decent life for all.

      In his recent book, he takes on the contempt that this liberal aristocracy feels towards what they call, populism.
