The New Authoritarians

The New Authoritarians

by David Renton (Author)

As far-right parties gain power and rise to prominence across the world, there is a hunger and need to understand where they came from, what they represent, and how they can be effectively opposed.

This book is unique in charting a path between alarmism and complacency, demonstrating how extreme right-wing forces and ideologies have been rehabilitated through a convergence with more mainstream actors.

Covering the United States, Britain, continental Europe and beyond, this is a book with a global relevance and scale.

David Renton is an internationally recognized authority on the far-right, fascism, and anti-fascism, ideally placed to offer a uniquely nuanced take on the meaning of our political moment.
