Abstract:

Across Europe, parties of the Radical Right are moving environmental themes to the center of their political programs. In Nature and Nationalism, Jonathan Olsen explores this right-wing ecology in Germany, its ideological underpinings, historical evolution, and relationship to more mainstream political-environmental discourse. Arguing that radical environmentalism is not exclusively a domain of the left, Olsen shows how many of Germany's Radical Right parties ground their environmental ideology in an anti-universalist anthropology which sees human beings as naturally "rooted" in specific nations and cultural traditions.

Pollution in this discourse signifies not only the disruption of the natural world, but the social world as well, thus providing an environmental justification for an anti-immigrant politics which finds resonance outside the specific milieu of the Far Right.
