Availability: Ready to download

This book is designed as a timely analysis of the rise of post-modern conservatism in many Western countries across the globe. It provides a theoretical overview of post-modernism, why post-modern conservatism emerged, what distinguishes it from other variants of conservatism and differing political doctrines, and how post-modern conservatism governs in practice. First dev This book is designed as a timely analysis of the rise of post-modern conservatism in many Western countries across the globe. It provides a theoretical overview of post-modernism, why post-modern conservatism emerged, what distinguishes it from other variants of conservatism and differing political doctrines, and how post-modern conservatism governs in practice. First developing a unique genealogy of conservative thought, arguing that the historicist and irrationalist strains of conservatism were ripe for mutation into post-modern form under the right social and cultural conditions, then providing a new unique theoretical framework to describe the conditions for the emergence of post-modern conservatism, The Rise of Post-modern Conservatism applies its theoretical framework to a concrete analysis of the politics of the day. Ultimately, it aims to help us understand the emergence and rise of identity oriented alt right movements and their “populist” spokesmen particularly in the United States, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Poland, and now Italy.

    What a disappointing book. It should have been punchy and powerful. There is rich, potent and edgy content to use within this important topic and debate. But ... But ... This book is strangely undercooked. Every moment when the discussion is moving to a volatile and intriguing stage, McManus pulls back, pulls away, or retracts to generalities and ambiguities.

It should have been punchy and powerful. There is rich, potent and edgy content to use within this important topic and debate. But ... But ... This book is strangely undercooked. Every moment when the discussion is moving to a volatile and intriguing stage, McManus pulls back, pulls away, or retracts to generalities and ambiguities. This is a gunna, coulda, shoulda book. Particularly, the theoretical complexities of postmodern - far beyond Foucault and Derrida who are rendered too important in this book - are underplayed. Similarly, neoliberalism is dehistoricized. And 2007-8 is bled of meaning and context. I was hoping it would be a revelatory book. It's a disappointment. Generalized. Poorly paced and poorly argued.
