Populist Parties and the Failure of the Political Elites
2016 Peter Lang

Adamson analyses the reasons behind the electoral success of European right-wing populist parties. Using the Austrian Freedom Party under Joerg Haider as a case study and with a richness of primary material, he argues that their success is only partly caused by "racism". It is also, and more prominently, the result of populism - i.e. a critique of the "elite".
