About this book

No other political party in the history of Britain's fascist tradition has been as successful at the ballot box as today's British National Party (BNP). This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Contemporary British Fascism  offers an in-depth study of the BNP and its quest for social and political legitimacy.

About the authors

NIGEL COPSEY is Reader in Modern History at the University of Teesside (UK). The author of Anti-Fascism in Britain, and co-editor of British Fascism, the Labour Movement and the State, he has published widely on British right-wing extremism, fascism and anti-fascism.

Reviews

'Copsey's updated book on the BNP is essential reading for political scientists and extremism-watchers who want to gain deeper insight into the evolution of the extreme right in Britain. It also presents a meticulous case study in the way the irresistible forces of virulent racism and fascism that dominated crisis-stricken inter-war Europe are prepared to cynically domesticate and 'democratize' themselves to survive in a contemporary world of globalization, multiculturalism, and mindless consumerism in their pursuit of the chimera of national rebirth.' - Roger Griffin, Professor of Modern History, Oxford Brookes University, UK
