The wake of the most recent global financial crisis has resulted in a surge of support for populist parties in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Welfare, Populism and Welfare Chauvinism examines why so many ascendant right-wing populist political groups advocate for reducing welfare benefits in favor of cutting taxes for the wealthiest citizens.
 
Review Quotes
Femke Roosma, Tilburg University
“A very timely exposé that contributes significantly to our understanding of the factors at stake in the complex interplay between the rise of populism and the development of the welfare state.”
Steffen Mau, Humboldt University of Berlin
"This important book sets out to tackle the welfare–populism nexus and convincingly shows that the new divisions in our societies instigate welfare chauvinism."
