In 2016, the world's richest democracies witnessed a collective upheaval that shocked the globe. A new book by John B. Judis, The Populist Explosion, traces the phenomenon of populism back to its roots in the 1890s United States and sees it in a new light: as a warning sign for the ideological crises to come. What started in the United States spread to Europe and back again. As the EU grapples with the aftershock of Brexit, the U.S. must also come to terms with the implications of the rise of Donald Trump: growing numbers of people are insisting that our standard worldview is breaking down and in desperate need of repair.

Join The Elliott Bay Book Company at Folio for a conversation with John B. Judis on the social and economic upheaval roiling politics on both sides of the aisle and both sides of the Atlantic.
