'With the current surge of right-wing populism in Europe this book is a key contribution to the critical discourse analysis on this frightening development. Its coverage of the various parts and countries of Europe by local experts is as complete as it is thorough, and offers the necessary basis for both national as well as international debate. A crucial text for all scholars and students in the social sciences in general, and in discourse studies and political science in particular.' --Teun A. van Dijk, Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, Spain
'This is an important collection of essays which shows why we should be very concerned about the viral spread of right-wing populism across Europe. Uniquely, it dissects the anatomy of the phenomenon in different national contexts and it exposes its affective and discursive power - one that cannot be lightly dismisses as crackpot or marginal.' --Ash Amin, Professor of Geography at Cambridge University, UK
