In recent years the revival of the far right and anti-Semitic, racist and fascist organizations has posed a significant threat throughout Europe. Mapping the Extreme Right in Contemporary Europe provides a broad geographical overview of the dominant strands within the contemporary radical right in both Western and Eastern Europe.

After providing some local and regional perspectives, the book has a series of national case studies of particular countries and regions including: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Eastern Europe, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Scandinavia, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. A series of thematic chapters examine transnational phenomena such as the use of the Internet, the racist music scene, cultural transfers and interaction between different groups.

Drawing together a wide range of contributors, this is essential reading for all those with an interest in contemporary extremism, fascism and comparative party politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`This study is distinctive in being grounded in a wide array of empirically well documented case studies. It integrates in a convincing explanation multiple causal factors, illustrating the specific interaction of the local, national and supra-national determinants of right wing extremism and its manifestations.'

Carlo Ruzza, Professor of Political Sociology, University of Leicester, UK.

`This is the most interesting and comprehensive collection of articles on the radical right to appear in many years. The authors, from Europe, the United States, Mexico, Turkey and Canada, include scholars who have been writing on this subject for many years, as well as a group of new and clearly talented young scholars. These excellent contributions could not be timelier.'

Martin A. Schain, Professor of Politics, New York University, USA.
