Jacques Ranciere was a student of Althusser before he famously turned against his mentor; now, he’s regarded as one of the major thinkers of our age. In his new book, he examines how the West can no longer simply extol the virtues of democracy by contrasting it with the horrors of totalitarianism.

As certain governments are exporting democracy by brute force, and a reactionary strand in mainstream political opinion is willing to abandon civil liberties and destroy collective values of equality, Ranciere explains how democracy—government by all—attacks any form of power based on the superiority of an elite. Hence the fear, and consequently the hatred, of democracy amongst the new ruling class.

In a compelling and timely analysis, Hatred of Democracy rediscovers the ever-new and subversive power of the democratic idea.
