Black Lives Matter


CRWS stands in solidarity with those protesting anti-Black violence and working to promote racial justice in policing, health care, and all spheres of society. White supremacy is a core value of the right wing; for those interested in learning more, we recommend two books by our faculty affiliates: Global Raciality: Empire, PostColoniality, DeColoniality by Paola Bacchetta, Sunaina Maira, and Howard Winant and Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America by Kathleen Belew.


Book Cover: Empire of Resentment

New Book on Populism and Nationalism


Larry Rosenthal, CRWS Chair, chronicles the transformation of the American far right that made the Trump presidency possible—and what it portends for the future. Since Trump’s victory and the UK’s Brexit vote, much of the commentary on the populist epidemic has focused on the emergence of populism. In Empire of Resentment: Populism’s Toxic Embrace of Nationalism, Rosenthal argues that what is happening globally is not the emergence but the transformation of right-wing populism. Rosenthal paints a vivid sociological, political, and psychological picture of the transnational quality of this movement, which is now in power in at least a dozen countries, creating a de facto Nationalist International. The future of democratic politics in the United States and abroad depends on whether right-wing populists stay with this nationalist ideology and whether the liberal and left parties have the political capacity to effect a progressive populism of their own.
