Transcript-Verlag

How does the far right operate today? This volume presents a unique critical survey of the online and offline tactics, symbols, and platforms that are strategically remixed to stake national and transnational cultural claims by contemporary far-right groups in Europe and North America. Featuring short, accessible analyses by an international range of expert scholars, policy advisors ,and activists, the book offers a plurality of answers to practical and theoretical questions about how and why the Internet has been crucial to emboldening extreme nationalisms in these regions and what cultural approaches civil societies should develop in response.
