9780521896245   Product Code: 21693
Throughout Western Europe, from Belgium to Austria, parties of the radical right have appeared in recent decades. Most fragment or fade after a short period, though some, such as Le Pen's Front National in France, have proved more durable. Avoiding the usual emphasis on unemployment, globalization and immigration, this groundbreaking study examines the roles of leadership, activists and organization in the success or failure of these groups, and the threat they pose to parliamentary democracy.
