Fixing the system; a brief history of populism, ancient and modern.


Fixing the system; a brief history of populism, ancient and modern.

Kuzminski, Adrian.

Continuum Publishing Group


218 pages




Addressing both European and American variants, this text narrates the history of populism, which the author sees as the genuine "third way" of politics, transcending both the "big government" policies of the Left and the "big business" policies of the Right. His narrative begins with ancient Greece and continues through Edward Kellogg's proposals for an American public credit system in the 19th century.
