Contemporary British fascism : the British National Party and the quest for legitimacy by Nigel Copsey( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary British Fascism offers the first in-depth study of the BNP and its quest for social and political legitimacy. Founded in 1982 and led by John Tyndall until 1999, the 'old' BNP is thoroughly investigated. Nigel Copsey then moves on to discuss Nick Griffin's 'modernisation' strategy as well as the factors behind the party's recent electoral success. In the final chapter, the subject is placed in its wider European context. This is a book that serves as a wake-up call for those who take the party's growing respectability at face value."--Jacket

This book examines the recent development of the far right in Britain with a particular focus on the British National Party (BNP) the most electorally successful far right party in British history.

Cultures of Post-War British Fascism by Nigel Copsey( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Post-War Britain cultural interventions were a feature of fascist parties and movements, just as they were in Europe. This book makes a new major contribution to existing scholarship which begins to discuss British fascism as a cultural phenomenon. A collection of essays from leading academics, this book uncovers how a cultural struggle lay at the heart of the hegemonic projects of all varieties of British fascism. Such a cultural struggle is enacted and reflected in the text and talk, music and literature of British fascism. Where other published works have examined the cultural visions of British fascism during the inter-war period, this book is the first to dedicate itself to detailed critical analysis of the post-war cultural landscapes of British fascism. Through discussions of cultural phenomena such as folk music, fashion and neo-nazi fiction, among others, Cultures of Post-War British Fascism builds a picture of Post-War Britain which emphasises the importance of understanding these politics with reference to their corresponding cultural output. This book is essential reading for undergraduates and postgraduates studying far right politics and British history."-

"This book traces the varied development of the far right in Britain from the formation of the National Front in 1967 to the present day. Experts draw on a range of disciplinary and methodological perspectives to provide a rich and detailed account of the evolution of the various strands of the contemporary far right over the course of the last fifty years. The book examines a broad range of subjects, including Holocaust denial, neo-Nazi groupuscularity, transnational activities, ideology, cultural engagement, homosexuality, gender and activist mobilisation. It also includes a detailed literature review. This book is essential reading for students of fascism, racism and contemporary British cultural and political history."--
