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.
