Democracy and Demagogues

America is in the throes of a political transformation, but of what kind exactly? Populist, nationalist, authoritarian? All of the above? And is ours a home-grown affair or part of a broader trend?

Ian Buruma and Mark Lilla are both longtime contributors to The New York Review of Books and authors of important, acclaimed books on international politics. Join them for a discussion moderated by Sam Tanenhaus, former editor of The New York Times Book Review.
