The second volume in the new series, edited by Anton Shekhovtsov and Paul Jackson.
Written by established and emerging researchers on the far right, this volume presents new analysis of the shifting phenomenon of White Power music. It offers a timely overview of how White Power music helps preserve ultranationalist and racist narratives, recruit young people to the extreme-right political cause, and eventually encourages violence against the alleged ‘enemies’ and ‘traitors’ of the ‘White Race’.
To map this diverse culture, the volume focuses on national case studies ranging from the West to the East, as well as discussing particular topics such as the role of women in White Power music, censorship and the legacy of the late Ian Stuart Donaldson, founder of the Blood and Honour promotion network and a major figure in the extreme-right music scene.
The first volume in a new series of books under the title Mapping the Far-Right, published by the Radicalism and New Media Research Group and Searchlight.
Edited by Paul Jackson of the Radicalism and New Media Research Group at the University of Northampton, and Gerry Gable, publisher of Searchlight, this book, published in September 2011, offers a detailed examination of the use of new media by contemporary forms of extreme nationalism. Topics for discussion range from the British National Party, to the English Defence League, to the Aryan Strike Force and the Blood & Honour network. Critical analysis by leading academic and Searchlight experts reveals how online spaces developed by such far-right movements have revolutionised extremist activity in recent years. This volume offers analysis for campaigners searching for the latest thinking on far-right activity. It also offers excellent summary discussions of this vital topic to students and researchers of British fascism. Finally, its investigations will be highly relevant to practitioner contexts, including policing, probation, and teaching.
