about

This study of the German right-extremist movement looks at the three rightist political parties, neo-Nazi groups, skinhead gangs, and New Right intellectuals. It poses the question whether, at a time of global recession, the existing democratic system is resilient enough to meet the challenges posed by the xenophobic and racist groups.
GERARD BRAUNTHAL is Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA. As a specialist on politics in Germany he has written numerous books on its parties, interest groups, and domestic politics, such as The German Social Democrats since 1969: A Party in Power and Opposition.
