Quick Overview

Starting with penal populism, this book examines a paradox: the illiberal turn that liberal democracy has taken. Based on ethnographic fieldwork on a housing estate, it moves from why liberal democracy has taken a punitive turn, to what democracy means to these residents and how they experience their daily engagements with the state.
