About this book

This study of the German right-extremist movement looks at the three rightist political parties, neo-Nazi groups, skinhead gangs, and New Right intellectuals. It poses the question whether, at a time of global recession, the existing democratic system is resilient enough to meet the challenges posed by the xenophobic and racist groups.

Reviews

'Right-wing Extremism in Contemporary Germany provides readers with valuable insights into how the far right in Germany is challenging the political order on the streets, in the media and at the ballot box. In this well written and carefully researched book, Gerard Braunthal shows that the 'Berlin Republic' is actively responding to the threat and will be unlikely go the way of the Weimar Republic, even as it experiences the worst economic crisis in decades.'

- David Patton, Connecticut College, USA

'Gerard Braunthal's sweeping study of right-wing extremism in Germany since 1990 is based upon massive research. It is distinguished by the comprehensiveness of its treatment and the meticulousness of its scholarship. This volume will stand for many, many years as THE standard work in English on this theme.'

- Stephen Kalberg, Boston University, USA
