Extreme Right in Australia Immunisation or Contamination

Extreme Right in Australia Immunisation or Contamination

Author: Aurelien (La Trobe University, Australia) Mondon, Andy Fleming Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/12/2018

This book provides a comprehensive history of the Australian extreme right as well as an analysis of the pattern this country followed in the creation and shaping of this political group, compared to that of other western countries. While it will offer a chronological account of its various movements, it will also investigate the reasons why the Australian extreme right failed to gain the same prominence its European counterpart has gathered over the past two centuries. This book will provide an original and critical analysis of the creation of the Australian ethos, which will be argued to have played a major part in preventing the rise of the extreme right through the co-opting of its politics within the mainstream. The book offers an insightful and innovative account of Australian history, as well as a compelling argument as to the development of the Australian ethos and national identity. It is not only a historical account of the development of the extreme right, it is also an analysis of its impact on contemporary politics. As such, it fills a gap in the existing literature and also adds to the debate regarding the present state of politics in Australia

Fascism without Borders Transnational Connections and Cooperation between Movements and Regimes in Europe from 1918 to 1945

Fascism without Borders Transnational Connections and Cooperation between Movements and Regimes in Europe from 1918 to 1945

Author: Arnd Bauerkaemper Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/12/2018

It is one of the great ironies of the history of fascism that, despite their fascination with ultra-nationalism, its adherents understood themselves as members of a transnational political movement. While a true Fascist International has never been established, European fascists shared common goals and sentiments as well as similar worldviews. They also drew on each other for support and motivation, even though relations among them were not free from misunderstandings and conflicts. Through a series of fascinating case studies, this expansive collection examines fascism's transnational dimension, from the movements inspired by the early example of Fascist Italy to the international antifascist organizations that emerged in subsequent years.

Never Again Rock Against Racism and the Anti-Nazi League 1976-1982

Never Again Rock Against Racism and the Anti-Nazi League 1976-1982

Author: David Renton Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/12/2018

By 1976, the National Front had become the fourth largest party in Britain. In a context of national decline, racism and fears that the country was collapsing into social unrest, the Front won 19 per cent of the vote in elections in Leicester and 100,000 votes in London. In response, an anti-fascist campaign was born, which combined mass action to deprive the Front of public platforms with a mass cultural movement. Rock Against Racism brought punk and reggae bands together as a weapon against the right. At Lewisham in August 1977, fighting between the far right and its opponents saw two hundred people arrested and fifty policemen injured. The press urged the state to ban two rival sets of dangerous extremists. But as the papers took sides, so did many others who determined to oppose the Front. Through the Anti-Nazi League hundreds of thousands of people painted out racist graffiti, distributed leaflets and persuaded those around them to vote against the right. This combined movement was one of the biggest mass campaigns that Britain has ever seen. This book tells the story of the National Front and the campaign which stopped it.

Fascism and Dictatorship The Third International and the Problem of Fascism

Fascism and Dictatorship The Third International and the Problem of Fascism

Author: Nicos Poulantzas Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/11/2018

The resurgence of the far right across Europe and the emergence of the alt-right in the US have put the question of fascism urgently back on the agenda. For those trying to understand these forms of politics, there is no better place to start than Fascism and Dictatorship, the unrivalled Marxist study of German and Italian fascism. It carefully distinguishes between fascism as a mass movement before the seizure of power and what it becomes as an entrenched machinery of dictatorship. It compares the distinct class components of the counterrevolutionary blocs mobilised by fascism in Germany and Italy; analyses the changing relations between the petty bourgeoisie and big capital in the evolution of fascism; discusses the structures of the fascist state itself, as an emergency regime for the defence of capital; and provides a sustained and documented criticism of official Comintern attitudes and policies towards fascism in the fateful years after the Versailles settlement. Fascism and Dictatorship represents a challenging synthesis of factual evidence and conceptual analysis, a standard bearer of what Marxist political theory should be.

Nazism across Borders The Social Policies of the Third Reich and their Global Appeal

Nazism across Borders The Social Policies of the Third Reich and their Global Appeal

Nazism across Borders argues that Nazi social policies were part of transnational exchanges and processes. Beyond territorial conquest, the Nazis planned to export and internationalize their version of welfare, and promoted a new kind of internationalism, pitched as a superior alternative to its liberal and Communist contenders. Since the late nineteenth century, the 'German social model' had established itself as a powerful route for escaping from the precarious conditions associated with wage work. The Nazis capitalized on this reputation, continuing some elements, but also added new measures, mainly to pursue their antisemitic, racist, and highly aggressive goals. The contributions in this collection shed new light on the complex ways in which German and Nazi ideas were received and negotiated by non-German actors and groups around the world before the Second World War. Why were they interested in what was going on in Germany? To what extent did Nazi policies emulate programmes elsewhere (for example, in Fascist Italy), and where did they serve as role models? Nazi social policies, we argue, were a benchmark that societies as diverse as Japan, Norway, and the United States considered in making their own choices. Nazism across Borders breaks new ground for the history of the Second World War and 'Hitler's empire' in Europe. How did the Nazis export their ideas when they finally occupied large swaths of the continent and what was the role of non-German actors? What were the links to the better-known stories of exploitation of lands, resources, and peoples?

The Coming of the American Behemoth The Origins of Fascism in the United States, 1920 -1940

The Coming of the American Behemoth The Origins of Fascism in the United States, 1920 -1940

Author: Michael Joseph Roberto Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/10/2018

Most people in the United States have been trained to recognize fascism in movements such as Germany's Third Reich or Italy's National Fascist Party, where charismatic demagogues manipulate incensed, vengeful masses. We rarely think of fascism as linked to the essence of monopoly-finance capitalism, operating under the guise of American free-enterprise. But, as Michael Joseph Roberto argues, this is exactly where fascism's embryonic forms began gestating in the United States, during the so-called prosperous 1920s and the Great Depression of the following decade. Drawing from a range of authors who wrote during the 1930s and early 1940s, Roberto examines how the driving force of American fascism comes, not from reactionary movements below, but from the top, namely, Big Business and the power of finance capital. More subtle than its earlier European counterparts, writes Roberto, fascist America's racist, top-down quashing of individual liberties masqueraded as real democracy, upholding the Constitution, and the pressure to be 100 Percent American. The Coming of the American Behemoth is intended as a primer, to forge much-needed discourse on the nature of fascism, and its particular forms within the United States. The book focuses on the role of the capital-labor relationship during the period between the two World Wars, when the United States became the epicenter of the world-capitalist system. Concentrating on specific processes, which he characterizes as terrorist and non-terrorist alike, Roberto argues that the interwar period was a fertile time for the incubation of a protean form of tyranny - a fascist behemoth in the making, whose emergence has been ignored or dismissed by mainstream historians. This book is a necessity for anyone who fears America tipping ever closer, in this era of Trump, to full-blown fascism.

Militant Right-Wing Extremism in Putin's Russia Legacies, Forms and Threats

Militant Right-Wing Extremism in Putin's Russia Legacies, Forms and Threats

Author: Miroslav Mares, Martin Larys, Jan Holzer Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/10/2018

Militancy continues to be characteristic of many supporters of the Russian far right, encompassing a belligerent rhetoric, a strong perception of participants as political warriors and often the use of physical violence. How serious a threat does Russian militant right-wing extremism pose to Russia and the World, and how has the level of threat changed over time? This book addresses this question by exploring right-wing extremism in Russia, its historical context and its resurgence over the past thirty years. Outlining the legacies and forms presented by current right-wing extremism, with a particular focus on militant extremism, it employs a historical, descriptive method to analyse the threats and risks posed. Presented within the framework of research on extremism and political violence related to the Russian political thought, the book outlines the key criteria of identifying threats, such as the level of violence, ability to gain supporters and penetration of governing elites. Primarily aimed at researchers and academics in political science, extremism, security studies and the history of Russia and Eastern, Central and South-East Europe, this book will also be of interest to political journalists and practitioners in international security.
