This is the first study to make a detail case for the Frankfurt School's relevance to understanding contemporary populism. It reconstructs their analysis of 'modern demagogy' and demonstrates its advantages over orthodox 'populism studies' and the work of Laclau. The book also extends the Institute's analysis to assess 'counter-demagogic' forces. -- .
