Explaining how the right wing get their popularity by using fear

The Politics of Fear: What Right-Wing Populist Discourses Mean - Ruth Wodak

The link provide an excerpt of the book to be read online.

Interesting concept. 

 

One of the strong reasons I support paper book and real physical bookstores. I wouldn't pick this one up if it is not being displayed in the local bookstore.
