This book traces the rise of the French National Front and presents an analysis of the organisation's origins, structure and doctrine which concludes that the Le Pen phenomenon represents a modern and sophisticated form of fascism. The authors offer a critical assessment of how political parties and anti-racist organisations have responded to the National Front's exploitation of the immigration issue and examine the political arguments accompanying the reception of foreign workers and their families by French society during the twentieth century.


Introduction The Republic and Her Immigrants The National Front Breakthrough, 1981-88 Le Pen and the Extremist Tradition Anatomy of a Fascist Party: Ideology, Strategy, Organisation Youth and Anti-Racism In and Against the System, the Third Force in French Politics Where Do We Go From Here?
