Yascha Mounk: "The People vs. Democracy" | Talks at Google

Yascha Mounk is a writer, academic and public speaker known for his work on the rise of populism and the crisis of liberal democracy. He is a Lecturer on Government at Harvard University, a Senior Fellow at New America, a columnist at Slate, and the host of "The Good Fight" podcast.

Using his own original research and on-the-ground reporting from countries around the world, Mounk discusses the themes and highlights from his latest book, "The People vs. Democracy." He explains what is at risk if the current trends in America and Western Europe continue. For those unwilling to give up on either individual rights or the popular will, Mounk explains, there is little time to waste: this may be our last chance to save democracy.
