Abstract:

""The politics of nostalgia" looks at the history of political racism in New Zealand. From the early 1970s, extreme right-wing groups began to proliferate in this country and to present their ideas more forcefully. The author describes the growth of extremism in the 1970s and 1980s, examines the arguments, style and support for such groups and offers reasons for their appearance. Extreme right-wing and neo-fascist groups are one part of the New Right, and a move towards conservatism. They represent one response to the growing concern about raical and gender issues, a discontent with economic developments and a nostalgia for the untroubled days of the immediate post-war period. Here is an extensive analysis of the new politics of the late 1980s, including a comparison between the experiences of New Zealand, Australia, UK and Canada."--Back cover.
