Summary "The end of the European twentieth century was marked by a resurgence of extreme right-wing politics and, in Bosnia and Kosovo, atrocities comparable to the most degrading events of the Second World War. Nicholas Fraser has spent three years traveling across Europe to meet, confront and try to understand the personalities behind this resurgence."
"Fraser challenges Jean-Marie Le Pen to admit his real agenda for France, travels to Germany to listen to clandestine Nazi rallies in woods and spends time with those who think Hitler was a great leader. In trying to understand such people, the enemies of democracy, Fraser attempts to answer whether European civilization is seriously threatened at a time when we are trying to move closer together. Why do Europeans find it so hard to countenance foreigners in their midst and accept immigration? And how is it that the notion of multiculturalism is so fraught with problems in Europe? In our new century, these will be among the most urgent problems facing Europeans."--BOOK JACKET
