Evolution of the Far Right: From Fascism to Radical Right Populism

Paperback
Written by a leading expert, this book is the definitive guide to the evolution of the far right - in all its guises - from the end of World War 2 onwards. Beginning with several chapters outlining the key components of Italian Fascism, German Nazism and the historical movements inspired by them, the book then delineates how the far right has developed in Europe from 1945 to the 21st Century. Drawing on a broad range of geographic examples, the book provides a detailed comparative picture of the far right in terms of ideology, party organisation, leadership, electoral support, racism, violence, propaganda and social media.
