Abstract
This Panels discusses two recent books, European Populism in the Shadow of the Great Recession (edited by Hanspeter Kriesi and Takis S Pappas), and New Perspectives on Negative Campaigning. Why Attack Politics Matters (edited by Alessandro Nai and Annemarie Walter). But by discussing populism and negative campaigning, it wants also to discuss the understanding of politics that lies behind these two phenomena.

The authors will discuss both the phenomena and the particular contributions that their books make to understanding them. While the focus of the book on populism is on the effects of the financial and economic crisis in Europe, and how this has re-energised populist politics; the focus of the book on negative campaigning is on causes and effects of this way of conceiving political struggle.
