Abstract:

Colin Jordan and Britain's Neo-Nazi Movement casts fresh light on one of post-war Britain's most prominent and extreme fascists, using him as a lens to examine the contemporary history of the extreme right. The book explores the wide range of neo-Nazi groups that Colin Jordan inspired, led and contributed to throughout his time as Britain's foremost promoter of Nazi ideology. In a period stretching from the fallout of the Second World War right up to the Blair years, Colin Jordan became politically engaged with a multitude of Nazi-inspired extremist organisations, either as leader or as a key protagonist. Moreover, Jordan also developed critical relationships with larger, competitor extreme-right organisations and parties, including the Greater Britain Movement, the National Front and the most recent incarnation of the British National Party. His writings and attitude have even encouraged more recent extremist groups, such as the British People's Party and the British Movement, who have looked to Jordan as an inspirational figure in their own reconfigurations of a National Socialist political agenda.
