Summary "Since September 11 a political faultline has revealed itself in Europe. The far right - for sixty years no more than a stinging reminder of the atrocities of Nazi Germany - has dramatically resurfaced." "Angus Roxburgh is unique in having followed these events closely as Europe Correspondent for BBC Television and Radio. For the past four years he has talked to both leaders and supporters of the far right as their message gained popularity." "His eye-witness report looks both at the context of this new wave of intolerance - immigration, the resurgence of nationalism after the Cold War, the fear of Islamic fundamentalism, the alienation caused by globalisation and European integration - and at the way the leaders of far-right movements have redesigned themselves." "He shows how populist parties have exploited voters' dissatisfaction with decades of political correctness, which prevented serious problems from being aired until the extremists dared to do so."--BOOK JACKET
