The New Authoritarians: Convergence on the Right


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with David Renton, Barristor, historian, and anti-fascist activist. His earlier books include Fascism: Theory and Practice. His latest book is The New Authoritarians: Convergence on the Right.


A new and terrifying wave of authoritarianism veering toward fascism has taken hold of the leadership in many nations today.

From Trump in the US to Boris Johnson in the UK, Modi in India, Bolsonaro in Brazil, and many others it seems as though the right is dangerously ascendant.

Sonali's next guest is a historian who says that although today’s right-wing radical movements are more moderate than classical fascism, there are many similarities.
