Extreme Right Parties in Western Europe

Piero Ignazi

Abstract

The extreme right has consolidated its presence across Western Europe. This book presents a compilation of studies on the ideological meanings and political/partisan expressions of the extreme right, their post-war evolution, and the reasons behind the success and failure of various parties. It highlights the rise of a new type of parties that are anti-system rather than neo-fascist.

Keywords: extreme right, Western Europe, neo-fascism, political parties, ideology
