Thomas Frank

Everybody is afraid of the people: On populism and anti-populism.

Writer Thomas Frank explores populism - as an American left-wing tradition, a perpetual target of the political elite and the media class, and the only way left to accomplish progressive change for the people in a society ruled by capital for capital.

Thomas is author of the new book The People, No: A Brief History of Anti-Populism from Metropolitan Books.
