                     argues emerged in the 1980s as a new ‘post‑industrial’
                     form of technocracy. Populism, Esmark argues, is a
                     sign that the technocratic bluff has finally been called
                     and that technocracy posing as democracy will only
                     serve to exasperate existing problems. This book
                     sets a new benchmark for studies of technocracy,
                     showing that a solution to the challenge of populism
                     will depend as much on a technocratic retreat as
                     democratic innovation.
