An important examination of how and why Brexit, Trump, and the rise of the far right have happened, and the consequences for us all.
Brexit reflected perhaps the biggest vote of no confidence in the political establishment in modern British history. Despite the vote leading to shock and dismay across the globe, this backlash against the political elite had been decades in the making. But how did we get here?
In his important book, Paul Stocker examines how ideas of the far rightalways a fringe movement in Britainhave become part of the cultural and political mainstream, especially via a noxious right-wing press, and how these issues are not unique to Britain. Rather, the growth of far-right populism is a Western phenomenon, and one with trends that can be witnessed across Europe, as well as the US. Ultimately, "mainstreaming" this racism has combined with populisma growing sense that the political elite does not understand or represent the needs of ordinary Britonswhich culminated in Brexit.
