What can history contribute to an understanding of contemporary European populism, which is now as much in power as insurgent?

Is this just a reprise of what we have seen before, or something that reveals deeper problems with liberal democracy and capitalism in the post-financial crisis era? The lecture will focus on continental Europe with Brexit Britain, joining Putin’s Russia in the second lecture, taking place in January. 

Professor Michael Burleigh is the first Engelsberg Chair for 2019/20 at LSE IDEAS.

Michael is a historian who focuses primarily on Nazi Germany. He is the author of The Third Reich: a new history, which won the 2001 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction. His most recent book is The Best of Times, the Worst of Times. He has also won a British Film Institute Award for Archival Achievement and a New York Film and Television Festival Award Bronze Medal.

Christopher Coker is Director of LSE IDEAS and Professor of International Relations at LSE.
