This edited volume brings the historian’s concern with a richly temporal and contextual understanding of events and processes to the study of a range of key issues in contemporary studies of the far and populist radical right. Its cross-disciplinary approach does much more than fill in the gaps in our knowledge. It provides new insight into the shifting ideologies and mobilisational successes and failures of political movements on the far right of the political spectrum but also, and innovatively, into their subcultural, symbolic, gendered and emotional worlds. - Hilary Pilkington, Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester
"A timely review of the far right menace, then and now." Marjorie Mayo, Morning Star
"The book is thought provoking and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to make sure that tomorrow does not EVER belong to the far right." Unite the Union / Searchlight Magazine.
"The book offers readers a dynamic insight into the development of the British far right since 1967, and reminds us that despite its various peaks and troughs, the movement continues to have the ability to incite hatred and undermine democracy, as recent events have also shown. Contributors to this excellent volume advocate a new way of looking at the far right in Britain...The book is a must-read for researchers and general readers alike."
Katherine Williams, LSE Review of Books
"Copsey and Worley's book is a detailed and lively account of the past 40 years of the far right in Britain. It gives a good sense of the cultural impact of the right and of the right's clashes with its opponents. While this book is not the definitive history of the right in this period, nor is there any other single volume which covers as much ground as this does."
David Renton, Review 31
