Description - The Revival of Right-Wing Extremism in the Nineties by Peter H. Merkl
This collection takes a refreshingly original approach to the phenomenon of the radical right. Most studies have tended to concentrate on particular movements in a single country, neglecting to a greater or lesser extent the international dimensions of right-wing extremism. By contrast, Merkl and Weinberg adopt a comparative perspective, concentrating on the revival of the right across a variety of countries. For example, the work contains data from Lauri Karvonen reviewing levels of support from rightist values in all members of the European Union. Piero Ignazi discusses the appearance of a silent 'counter-revolution' all over western Europe and Peter Merkl explores of the reasons for the popularity of right-wing parties in Europe at this particular point in the continent's history. As well as studying movements in Britain, France and the United States, this book provides data from places as diverse as the Ukraine, South Africa, Belarus and Romania.
