NIGEL COPSEY is Reader in Modern History at the University of Teesside (UK). The author of Anti-Fascism in Britain, and co-editor of British Fascism, the Labour Movement and the State, he has published widely on British right-wing extremism, fascism and anti-fascism.


'Copsey's updated book on the BNP is essential reading for political scientists and extremism-watchers who want to gain deeper insight into the evolution of the extreme right in Britain. It also presents a meticulous case study in the way the irresistible forces of virulent racism and fascism that dominated crisis-stricken inter-war Europe are prepared to cynically domesticate and 'democratize' themselves to survive in a contemporary world of globalization, multiculturalism, and mindless consumerism in their pursuit of the chimera of national rebirth.' - Roger Griffin, Professor of Modern History, Oxford Brookes University, UK
