Summary:"This troubling reflection, the product of a lifetime of thinking, addresses the question of how our democracy has changed to make our way of life vulnerable to the shallowest possible demagoguery." "Lukacs contrasts the political systems, movements, and ideologies that have bedeviled the twentieth century: democracy, Liberalism, nationalism, fascism, Bolshevism, National Socialism, populism. Reflecting on American democracy, Lukacs describes its evolution from the eighteenth century to its current form - a dangerous and possibly irreversible populism."--BOOK JACKET.
