Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The National Front is the most controversial political party in contemporary France. This study enquires into the type of nationalism the party embraces, explores the value system of the movement, and explains the way in which the party's ideology has been formulated and articulated in the 1980s and 1990s. Looks at general influences on the party's nationalism, and discusses the importance of nation in the party's discourse, threats to the nation as perceived by the party, and the reality of the party in power in local government.
