The book provides an innovative new approach to understanding the far-right in Britain. Rather than looking at the biographies of the leaders or the historical evolution of the orgainsations or the number of elected representatives, it concentrates instead on the broader impact of the far-right on areas such as the mainstream political parties, governmental policy, local and community politics, the public sphere, culture and transnational forms of right-wing extremism.
