About this item

This book details the resurgence of populism in Latin America and the reasons for the electoral success of populist candidates from the late 1990s to the present, demonstrating that populism results when both supply and demand are present and considering its nature and causes. It discusses the conceptualization of populism; its major definitions, particularly political and ideational understandings; explanations in the literature and the role of the interaction between party system institutionalization, corruption, and evidence of disadvantage; the case of Bolivia; a comparative perspective on causes of populism in presidential elections from 1996 to 2010 in Latin America; other concepts that seem similar or connected to populism, the importance of concepts in defining and constituting populations, how conceptual alternatives impact the understanding of causality, and the distinctiveness of populism; and implications.
