Book Launch: A Transnational History of Right-Wing Terrorism (Routledge).

Annette Finley-Croswhite's picture

In March of this year, the edited collection of essays A Transnational History of Right-Wing Terrorism was published with Routledge.  A book launch is coming on July 12 at 12noon EST or 6PM CET where the launch will be held in Erlangen, Germany.  See below. 

 A Transnational History of Right-Wing Terrorism offers new insights into the history of right-wing extremism and violence in Europe, East, and West, from 1900 until the present day. It is the first book to take such a broad historical approach to the topic.

The book explores the transnational dimension of right-wing terrorism; networks of right-wing extremists across borders, including in exile; the trading of arms; the connection between right-wing terrorism and other forms of far-right political violence; as well as the role of supportive elements among fellow travelers, the state security apparatus, and political elites. It also examines various forms of organizational and ideological interconnectedness and what inspires right-wing terrorism. In addition to several empirical chapters on prewar extreme-right political violence, the book features extensive coverage of postwar right-wing terrorism including the recent resurgence in attacks.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of right-wing extremism, fascism, Nazism, terrorism, political violence, and war.

The editors, Johannes Dafinger and Moritz Florin, are organizing a book-launch event with colleagues from Erlangen University, and with Graham Macklin as a commentator (he is also one of the editors of the book-series at Routledge). This event will take place in Erlangen and on zoom on 12th of July at 6:15 pm CET.  Some of the books contributing authors will also be present at the launch.
