Victoria-based Jonathan Manthorpe fifth book, Restoring Democracy in an Age of Populists and Pestilence (Cormorant $24.95) outlines what is eroding the democracies in the Western world and provides solutions for fixing them. He names external influences from Russia and China as well as the internal pressures of income disparity as chief among the problems threatening the survival of many democratic systems.

His previous title, Claws of the Panda: Beijing’s Campaign of Influence and Intimidation in Canada (Cormorant 2019) was shortlisted for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Award and was named as one of the Globe and Mail’s top 100 books of 2019. 978-1-77086-582-2
