‘Populism’ is one of the most frequently used terms in today’s political discussions. From Turkey to the United States of America, the effect of populist politicians is felt more than ever today. Indeed, it is an extremely common occurrence to come across a political commentator defining a politician as a populist in newspapers or TV shows. This volume brings together scholars from various disciplines and invites its readers to consider the role played by both conventional and new media in the rise of this political movement. Its focus is not limited to the USA nor the UK, but investigates populism in countries such as Turkey and Spain. It will appeal to readers interested in classical populism and polarization studies, as well as those interested in post-truth studies.
