El populismo, que lleva años afianzado en los gobiernos de América Latina, ha irrumpido recientemente y con fuerza en España de la mano de Podemos. A lo largo de los años hemos visto como las políticas intervencionistas han conducido a sus países a la pobreza, a la inflación desbocada, a la corrupción –incluso en figuras como el expresidente brasileño Lula da Silva–, a los recortes de derechos y libertades y, en definitiva, a la destrucción de las posibilidades de progreso. Para entender este fenómeno tan arraigado en Hispanoamérica, los autores analizan la anatomía de la mentalidad populista, su desprecio por la libertad individual y la correspondiente idolatría por el Estado que los emparenta con totalitarismos del pasado, así como el odio hacia el neoliberalismo o su obsesión igualitarista, entre otros aspectos. Otro factor fundamental de la tradición populista, que se estudia en este libro, es la hegemonía cultural, el rol de los intelectuales y el uso del lenguaje en la creación de opinión a través de los medios de comunicación. Podemos, en este sentido, apenas ha adaptado al mercado español las formas y usos de una estrategia ya validada en otros territorios. A pesar de este panorama tan desalentador, los autores sostienen que hay esperanza. Una alternativa política que pasa por construir un nuevo republicanismo liberal a partir de la recuperación de las instituciones, la educación y el uso de las nuevas tecnologías.

What do such disparate events as Occupy Wall Street, IranÕs Islamic revolution and VenezuelaÕs socialist revolution have in common? Often, resentment based on past grievances or shortcomings seems to emerge from the depths of individual and collective psyches over the course of such emotionally charged movements. This resentment, and the related philosophical concept of ressentiment, can have a profound impact on the course of history and on the role of leadership within societies. Expanding on the concept of ressentiment, this book addresses the importance of emotions in historical events. The author explores the conditions that foster the development of ressentiment, the role of leaders and followers, and the phases of the phenomenon as it encourages destructive behaviors such as murder and suicide. Often considered an incurable disease with destructive social and political repercussions, it is a core motive for acts of terrorism, revolutions, social upheavals and processes of toxic leadership. The author puts forth a model that helps to describe certain historical processes led by ressentiment, like some revolutions and terrorist acts, and to distinguish them from other movements that are usually treated as similar (e.g., independence revolutions). The book then tackles a seemingly impossible question: Can we find a cure for this powerful and destructive impulse? With care and deliberation, the author demonstrates the power of ethical leadership, recognition and redemption as positive unifying forces during human conflicts. A philosophical endeavor to understand events from the Boston Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street, from the French revolution to Hugo Ch‡vezÕs revolution in Venezuela, this book will be fascinating reading for scholars and students of the social sciences and humanities and those with a particular interest in leadership.

The world’s leading intellectual offers a probing examination of the waning American Century, the nature of U.S. policies post-9/11, and the perils of valuing power above democracy and human rights In an incisive, thorough analysis of the current international situation, Noam Chomsky argues that the United States, through its military-first policies and its unstinting devotion to maintaining a world-spanning empire, is both risking catastrophe and wrecking the global commons. Drawing on a wide range of examples, from the expanding drone assassination program to the threat of nuclear warfare, as well as the flashpoints of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Israel/Palestine, he offers unexpected and nuanced insights into the workings of imperial power on our increasingly chaotic planet. In the process, Chomsky provides a brilliant anatomy of just how U.S. elites have grown ever more insulated from any democratic constraints on their power. While the broader population is lulled into apathy—diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable—the corporations and the rich have increasingly been allowed to do as they please. Fierce, unsparing, and meticulously documented, Who Rules the World? delivers the indispensable understanding of the central conflicts and dangers of our time that we have come to expect from Chomsky.

Moreover, they identify the pitfalls of democracy in a globalizing Latin America, as well as the hopes connected with energy politics. Finally, they consider the relationship with China and South-South cooperation as alternatives to long-term historical alliances
