About the Author

Rob Riemen is the author of Nobility of Spirit: A Forgotten Ideal (2008), which has been translated into eighteen languages. A writer and cultural philosopher, he is the founder of the Nexus Institute, an international center devoted to intellectual reflection and to inspiring Western cultural and philosophical debate. He lives in the Netherlands.


"For Rob Riemen the term populism should be scrapped-fascism is fascism then and now... History is not a one-way street and democracy has turned authoritarian before. Can it happen again? Why not?" -- Mark Mazower - Financial Times
"As long ago as 2010, the Dutch writer Rob Riemen argued that we should call movements that feed on fear, promote xenophobia and denigrate democratic institutions by an older name: 'fascist'. In his newest book, 'To Fight Against This Age', he argues that anything else is false: "The term populist is only one more way to cultivate the denial that the ghost of fascism is haunting our societies again"." -- The Irish Independent
"Riemen's dire warnings cannot help appearing prescient. American readers who are rightly worried about similarly distressing developments in the United States will feel fortified by the publication of To Fight Against This Age...establishes Riemen as an erudite, well-meaning and inspiring ally in the struggle to combat anti-liberal political trends." -- Damon Linker - New York Times Book Review
"We are sleepwalking into catastrophe; Riemen wants to wake us up and he does with passion, wisdom, and eloquence." -- Simon Schama
