The Voice of Modern Hatred: Tracing the Rise of Neo-Fascism in Europe

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, Sep 26, 2002 - History - 304 pages
The end of the twentieth century was marked by a resurgence of right-wing politics across Europe and, in Bosnia and Kosovo, atrocities comparable to the most degrading events of the Second World War. Nicholas Fraser spent three years traveling across Europe to meet, confront, and try to understand the personalities behind this resurgence and assess the threat they pose to democracy.

He interviewed members of the "traditional" Far Right groups, sat in meetings held by local Führers in Denmark, Belgium, and Germany, and spoke with the leaders who have learned to code their language in euphemism rather than overtly spread their message of hate. In looking at neo-Facism's recent history in Europe-its philosophical antecedents and its modern-day adherents-Nicholas Fraser provides a deep background for the crucial and ongoing debate about how democracies should deal with the Far Right.
