Beginning with an analysis of the complex relationship between fascism and the contemporary extreme right, the book discusses both populist radical right parties and the cultural and intellectual influences of the European New Right. It then analyses the effects of a range of factors on the ideological development of right-wing extremism including anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, religious extremism and hostility to the European Union. The final sections investigate a number of activist manifestations of the extreme right from youth participation and the white power music scene to the Internet and football hooliganism. Drawing together a wide range of contributors, this is essential reading for all those with an interest in contemporary extremism and fascism. The book is a companion volume to Mapping the Extreme Right(Routledge, 2012) which has the same editors.
