|About the Book|
The radical right has been a persistent feature of European societies. In power, it has unleashed wars, ethnic cleansing, and genocide. As a movement, it has promoted violence against minorities and immigrants and has threatened democratic politics. Convinced that understanding this complex and disturbing phenomenon requires new approaches, the editors of Fascism and Neofascism have assembled a diverse group of experts. Uniquely among the many studies of the topic, the volume explores both historical fascism and the contemporary radical right in a wide range of countries, and brings together perspectives rooted in cultural studies, history, and the social sciences.
