Actually Existing Populism: Anti-Immigration Rhetoric and the Assault on Liberal Democracy

Sasha Polakow-Suransky, deputy editor of Foreign Policy magazine, discusses his new book Go Back to Where You Came From: The Backlash Against Immigration and the Fate of Western Democracy. The book explores the confluence of circumstances that led to the rise of authoritarian populism in countries that were until recently believed to be robust liberal democracies.   Receive extra segments, book discounts, and other patron-only perks by supporting the show on Patreon.
