'A major achievement - the most comprehensive and insightful analysis of right-wing populism in Europe that has been published to date. This is comparative political analysis as it should be.' Peter Mair, European University Institute
'Cas Mudde has done a brilliant job in integrating the now vast literature on the populist radical right in Europe. By focusing on a broad comparative analysis, he has critically assessed many of the claims about the support, programs and success of these parties. In the process, he has provided an important and comprehensive framework for understanding them. This is an excellent book, important for both scholars and students alike.' Martin Schain, Professor of Politics, New York University
'Mudde's book gives testimony to the richness and depth of the literature on populist right-wing parties published over the past fifteen years, as well as to the many open questions that call for further research, given their scholarly importance and their political salience. There could be no better commentary and guide to the literature than Mudde's book. At the same time, Mudde advances the research frontier in creative ways and adds important insights critical for our understanding of the dynamic success (and failure) of populist right-wing parties in European politics.' Herbert Kitschelt, Duke University
'In this groundbreaking book, Mudde provides the first comprehensive analytical treatment of populist radical right parties in Europe, both west and east. ... Overall, a very thorough, careful, insightful, and impressive work. ... Highly recommended.' Choice
'... this book will undoubtedly stimulate much future research.' Political Studies Review
'... he should be credited for his choice to concentrate on what the parties themselves see as their ideological core. ... an impressive piece of work that fulfils the goal Mudde initially set forth for the book. ... the book is recommended both to academics and nonacademics with an interest in party politics.' Review of Politics
' ... the book is a must read for students of European politics... The book is likely to become a benchmark for future work on the radical right.' Journal of Politics
