Long description:

The Routledge Handbook of IIliberalism is the first authoritative reference work dedicated to illiberalism as a complex social, political, cultural, legal, and mental phenomenon.

Although illiberalism is most often discussed in political and constitutional terms, its study cannot be limited to such narrow frames. This Handbook comprises sixty individual chapters authored by an internationally recognized group of experts who present perspectives and viewpoints from a wide range of academic disciplines. Chapters are devoted to different facets of illiberalism, including the history of the idea and its competitors, its implications for the economy, society, government and the international order, and its contemporary iterations in representative countries and regions.

The Routledge Handbook of IIliberalism will form an important component of any library's holding; it will be of benefit as an academic reference, as well as being an indispensable resource for practitioners, among them journalists, policy makers and analysts, who wish to gain an informed understanding of this complex phenomenon.

"An impressive and wide-ranging volume whose theme is deeply relevant for political theorists and practical politicians in both liberal and illiberal democracies worldwide."

Susan Rose-Ackerman, Henry R. Luce Professor of Law and Political Science, Emeritus, Yale University

"Almost everyone writing for this volume, not just the editors, seems committed to treating illiberalism as the concept that sheds the greatest light on the distinctive forms of authoritarianism or populism or ethnocentrism emerging in contemporary politics. Are they justified in doing so? Does their restricted focus pay off in greater insight into contemporary political problems? My short answer to these questions is yes."

Bernard Yack, Society
