Overview

The book is an all-embracing survey of far-right politics in Europe: origins, development and impact. It is split into two main sections, part 1 comprising a number of longer essays on national traditions, themes etc., part 2 incorporating shorter entries on specific topics (arranged A-Z), such as movements, people, events, issues, locations, publications, etc. Taken together, the articles and entries in the encyclopedia confirm that the far right in Europe remains a significant force across many countries, all the more powerful for having such powerful historical antecedents.

Drawing on both the judgement of commentators and the statements of key political players themselves, The Far Right in Europe offers both reliable information and stimulating debate. The opening section of articles, each around 10,000 words long, outlines the far right traditions in key regions of Europe - (1) Western Europe, (2) Scandinavia, (3) Central Europe, (4) Eastern Europe, (5) Southern Europe and (6) the Balkans - and debates key concepts such as: the Origins of the Far Right; the Development of the Far Right; the Ideology of the Far Right; the Far Right and Foreign Policy; the Far Right and Economics; and the Xenophobia of the Far Right. The shorter entries which follow offer precise, up-to-date information on movements, people, events, issues, locations and key publications.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The overall quality is generally acceptable for introductory academic research on this topic, although academic writers such as the authors should not use Wikipedia as a source for citations in some essays. …This work is recommended with caution."

ARBAonline

"The editors of the encyclopaedia assert that it is not sufficient for politicians of moderate views to denounce the Far Right in general terms; if they are to rein it in, they will have to understand the reasons why it is a significant presence on the European scene. To this necessary process the encyclopaedia makes a useful contribution; and the results of the 2009 European Parliament election, in which for the first time ever the Far Right elected two parliamentary representatives in Britain, ensure that its findings will be of topical interest to many readers."
