'Populism, "Community", and Political Culture: the revenge of the liberal elite'
This book chapter examines the attack, mounted by elements of the trans-national liberal elite, on those forms of 'populism' which seem the threaten the electoral prospects of centrist political parties. The analysis is based upon the thesis that these social forces are less concerned with economic justice, than with the circulation of 'progressive' cultural tropes and discourses. A qualitative analysis of uses of the term 'community' in political discourse, is allied with a critique of 'dominant' political groups in order to substantiate the proposition that the elite is actually determinedly populist in its own uses of political rhetoric.
The research was conducted entirely within the auspices of the Media Discourse Group.
