Abstract

In this introductory chapter to the Oxford Handbook of Populism, we are interested in offering an overview of how research on populism has evolved over time and we structure
this contribution in four sections. We start by presenting a concise history of populism. After this, we analyze the development of the scholarship since the 1990s, putting special emphasis on the production of academic articles on populism in political science journals. Then we explain the organization of the Handbook and the criteria we have used for selecting the topics covered. Finally, we conclude with some reflections on the future research agenda on populism and hope that scholars will find some of these ideas attractive for their own research.
