Book discussion highlights analysis of the white working class in Europe and the US

In the midst of Brexit, the election of Donald Trump, and the rise of populist right parties across the European continent, social scientists have begun to propose explanations for this transatlantic explosion of nationalism, populism, and push back against the forces of globalization. Justin Gest, an assistant professor of public policy from the George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government, is one such social scientist, and his recent book The New Minority: White Working Class Politics in an Age of Immigration and Inequality, argues that feelings of marginalization by working class whites are a critical component of these anti-globalization trends.
