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.

In Europe, the far right is gaining momentum on the streets and in parliaments. By taking a close look at contemporary practices and strategies of far-right actors, the present volume explores this right-ward shift of European publics and politics. It assembles analyses of changing mobilization patterns and their effects on the local, national and transnational level. International experts, among them Tamir Bar-On, Liz Fekete, Matthew Kott, and Graham Macklin, scrutinize new forms of coalition building, mainstreaming and transnationalization tendencies as aspects of diversified far-right politics in Europe.

Der Krieg Gegen Den Westen

English summary: This edition of Aurel Kolnai's War against the West (1938) brings one of the first English-language critiques of Nazi ideology to a German-speaking audience interested in contemporary approaches to critically examining Nazism. Kolnai's main goal was to warn the Western world that Nazism threatened its core and its way of life. He accomplished this in his discussion of the basic elements of Nazi ideology, such as anti-Semitism, racial nationalism, and the anti-liberal concept of a people's community (Volksgemeinschaft), which, in his view, amounted to replacing Christianity with the political religion of race. German description: Diese historisch-kritische deutsche Ausgabe des 1938 auf Englisch erschienenen Buches von Aurel Kolnai The War against the West schliesst eine Lucke in der Dokumentation der zeitgenossischen Auseinandersetzungen mit den Ideen des Nationalsozialismus. Kolnai stellte die Unvereinbarkeit des Nationalsozialismus mit dem christlich-humanistischen Wertesystem heraus und hob dessen fundamentalen Gegensatz zur westlichen Demokratie, ihren christlichen Grundlagen und sozialistischen Elementen hervor. Sein Buch verstand Kolnai als Appell an den Westen, auf die existenzielle Bedrohung des burgerlichen Gesellschafts- und Wertesystems durch den Nationalsozialismus politisch angemessen zu reagieren. Der Nationalsozialismus musse ernst genommen werden, anstatt ihn vulgarmarxistisch als wenig originelle Variante eines aggressiv auf seine Existenzkrise reagierenden Kapitalismus zu unterschatzen oder als rein destruktiven Nihilismus zu verkennen. Mit traditionellen politischen Begriffen wie reaktionar und konservativ jedenfalls sei das radikal Neue des Nazismus, das Kolnai an der rassenbiologischen Umgestaltung der deutschen Gesellschaft festmachte, nicht zu fassen. Als Ausdruck deutschen Geistes sei der Nationalsozialismus tief in deutscher Geschichte verwurzelt, auch wenn er keineswegs, wie von ihm beansprucht, Inkarnation des Deutschen sei.

Analysing Fascist Discourse

European Fascism in Talk and Text

This book focuses primarily on continuities and discontinuities of fascist politics as manifested in discourses of post-war European countries. Many traumatic pasts in Europe are linked to the experience of fascist and national-socialist regimes in the 20th century and to related colonial and imperialist expansionist politics. And yet we are again confronted with the emergence, rise and success of extreme right wing political movements, across Europe and beyond, which frequently draw on fascist and national-socialist ideologies, themes, idioms, arguments and lexical items. Post-war taboos have forced such parties, politicians and their electorate to frequently code their exclusionary fascist rhetoric. This collection shows that an interdisciplinary critical approach to fascist text and talk—subsuming all instances of meaning-making (oral, visual, written, sounds, etc.) and genres such as policy documents, speeches, school books, media reporting, posters, songs, logos and other symbols—is necessary to deconstruct exclusionary meanings and to confront their inegalitarian political projects.

Roger Griffin offers a radically new conceptual framework for the study of fascism by locating its driving force in a distinctive form of utopian myth, that of the regenerated national community destined to rise up from the ashes of a decadent society ("palingenetic ultra-nationalism").

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Global Orders and Civilizations

Perspectives from History, Philosophy and International Relations

The explosion of new themes and working areas in social sciences in the aftermath of the Cold-War stimulated the 'cultural turn' of the previous decades and strengthened the position of the notion of 'civilisation' as a unit of analysis and locus of academic debate in the fields of history, philosophy, sociology, political science, and international relations. Given the fabricated and standardised nature of recent literature on political, economic and socio-cultural aspects of globalisation, it is crystal clear that historically and philosophically enlightened works written from the perspective of civilisational transformation will provide the much needed sophistication to conventional social science analyses trying to elucidate the organising principles of the global order. This novel collection represents a path-breaking work in the field of global/civilisational studies by constituting an interdisciplinary and theoretically-informed platform on which complex debates on the political, economic, socio-cultural, philosophical and ecological aspects of the global order could be conducted. The editors, Sadýk Ünay and Muzaffer þenel, managed to gather a truly original collection of articles from some of the leading authorities and promising academics on the theme of global orders with special reference to a civilisation transformation covering a wide spectrum in time and space from Antique Greece to the Islamic World, from Europe to the US and from East Asian history to current globalisations. Contributions rooted in the disciplines of history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, political science and global political economy are craftsmanly combined to give the reader a holistic vision towards the possibility of multiple civilisational experiments and global orders. This book which boldly endeavours to transcend narrow boundaries of conventional academic approaches and Western-centric prejudices in various branches of social sciences will be a must-read for students of globalisation, cultural studies and macro-history.

Black 1919

Riots, Racism and Resistance in Imperial Britain
Author: Jacqueline Jenkinson

During the 1919 port riots—in Glasgow, London, Liverpool, and Cardiff, among other cities—crowds of working-class whites targeted black workers, their families, their businesses, and their property. These riots were a manifestation of global unrest that affected Britain, parts of its empire, continental Europe, and North American during and after the wake of the economic struggles engendered by World War I. This volume reconsiders the economic and social causes of the riots and their impact on Britain's relationship with its empire and its colonial subjects, especially the effects of repatriation and the longer-term consequences for the black British workers and their families.

Diskursstrategien im Rechtspopulismus

Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs und Schweizerische Volkspartei zwischen Opposition und Regierungsbeteiligung

Rechtspopulistische Parteien betreiben die Wählermobilisierung aus der Opposition heraus häufig mit sehr großem Erfolg. Mündet dies jedoch in Regierungsbeteiligungen auf nationaler Ebene, so lässt der Wählerzuspruch meist schlagartig wieder nach. Oliver Geden rückt mit der Freiheitlichen Partei Österreichs und der Schweizerischen Volkspartei zwei Akteure ins Blickfeld, die den Übergang von Oppositions- zu Regierungsparteien mit höchst unterschiedlichem Erfolg bewältigt haben. Anhand von Medienanalysen sowie von eigens durchgeführten Interviews mit FPÖ- und SVP-Politikern zeichnet der Autor nach, in welcher Weise die inhaltliche Ausgestaltung rechtspopulistischer Politik von strategischen Erwägungen geprägt ist. Dabei wird deutlich, dass die Strukturen und Dynamiken der schweizerischen Politik einer rechtspopulistischen Partei günstigere Rahmenbedingungen für dauerhafte Wahlerfolge bieten als dies in Österreich der Fall ist.

Eine Kritik des Faschismus lässt sich ohne Wilhelm Reichs Massenpsychologie des Faschismus nicht mehr denken. Als erster durchschaute Reich mit seinem klinisch und soziologisch geschulten Blick den fundamentalen Zusammenhang zwischen autoritärer Triebunterdrückung und faschistischer Ideologie. Er analysiert in der Massenpsychologie die Gestik, Phraseologie, die moralischen Schemata und Aktionen der "Hitlerei" und weist in ihnen die Verschiebung von Sexualangst zu einem Mystizismus nach, der zu einem irrationalen Mechanismus chronischer Abhängigkeit führt. In der vorliegenden Ausgabe sieht Reich den Faschismus nicht mehr auf einzelne Staaten beschränkt, sondern erkennt ihn als Gefahr der modernen Massengesellschaft überhaupt.
