內容簡介


「要了解總統川普的吸引力,最有用的書就是由普林斯頓大學政治科學家穆勒所寫的這本書」─華盛頓郵報

美國總統川普、義大利話題政治人物貝魯斯柯尼、法國政治人物瑪琳‧勒朋等人的崛起,都證明平民主義再起。穆勒在本書中向大眾說明平民主義究竟為何物,為什麼對社會會有那麼大的影響力。

穆勒說明,平民主義的核心是主張剔除多元論,平民主義者總是說自己代表人民的利益,認為權力應歸還給平民百姓,穆勒並在書中提供不同的策略,告訴民主政權處理平民主義者的最佳方式,否則平民主義要是勢力夠大,也很有可能推翻他們認為不是「真正」人民的這個政府。

在這本書中,你會了解,是否每個批評媒體的人都會被稱為平民主義者?左派和右派的平民主義有什麼不同?平民主義是反民主體制的一種風潮?還是讓政府、人民關係更密切?

Donald Trump, Silvio Berlusconi, Marine Le Pen, Hugo Chávez—populists are on the rise across the globe. But what exactly is populism? Should everyone who criticizes Wall Street or Washington be called a populist? What precisely is the difference between right-wing and left-wing populism? Does populism bring government closer to the people or is it a threat to democracy? Who are "the people" anyway and who can speak in their name? These questions have never been more pressing.

In this groundbreaking volume, Jan-Werner Müller argues that at populism's core is a rejection of pluralism. Populists will always claim that they and they alone represent the people and their true interests. Müller also shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom, populists can govern on the basis of their claim to exclusive moral representation of the people: if populists have enough power, they will end up creating an authoritarian state that excludes all those not considered part of the proper "people." The book proposes a number of concrete strategies for how liberal democrats should best deal with populists and, in particular, how to counter their claims to speak exclusively for "the silent majority" or "the real people."

Analytical, accessible, and provocative, What Is Populism? is grounded in history and draws on examples from Latin America, Europe, and the United States to define the characteristics of populism and the deeper causes of its electoral successes in our time.
