Despite its association with the national, the modern Right is a transnational phenomenon. Whether in its fascist, conservative, or other forms, it organizes across national barriers, connecting movements in different countries. Yet this phenomenon has too often been neglected by scholars, an oversight that this volume seeks to correct. Drawing on a variety of cases in diverse regions of the world throughout the last hundred years—from anticommunism to white power movements to Turkish ultra-nationalists—this book offers powerful new insights into transnationalism, the Right, and the ways in which the two interact.

Editorial Reviews

“While scholars have traced foreign ideological influences on rightist movements, they have tended to overlook the transnational ties that bind together groups they regard as nationalistic.  By focusing on these connections, this book is a pioneering contribution to the literature.”—Sandra McGee Deutsch, Professor of History, University of Texas at El Paso  “At last, a book on the Right as a global political force.   Its top-rate scholarship shows the full reach of fascist, conservative, and anti-egalitarian movements across national borders and continents.”—Kathleen Blee, Distinguished Professor and Chair, University of Pittsburgh and author of Inside Organized Racism: Women in the Hate Movement“This book is the first collection ever that specifically focuses on comparative transnational right-wing movements. It’s a very exciting contribution to the growing literature on right-wing movements, co-edited by two leading scholars in the field.”—Paola Bacchetta, Associate Professor of Gender & Women’s Studies, University of California, Berkeley“This fine collection brings together a wide range of innovative work on the extreme right. It asks new questions and proposes some stimulating answers. It will be essential reading not just for scholars of extreme right, but of the burgeoning field of internationalism, too.”—Kevin Passmore, Reader in History, Cardiff University, UK
