On this edition of VOA's Press Conference USA, William Galston, senior fellow in the governance studies program at the Brookings Institution discusses his latest book "Anti Pluralism: The Populist Threat to Liberal Democracy," with host Carol Castiel and VOA Senior National Correspondent Jim Malone. Galston asserts that failed efforts to effectively address immigration, along with institutional dysfunction and a growing divide between urban and rural areas, have paved the way for a populist backlash in America and around the world.
