In recent years, far-right parties entered parliament in Germany and Spain and government in Estonia. From India to Brazil to the United States, the far right is ascendent in politics. Today’s far right is neither your grandfather’s world-destroying fascism, nor your father’s ineffective radical right. Its mainstreaming and normalization is a major threat to liberal democracies around the world. Cas Mudde’s The Far Right Today aims to educate and empower its readers to help fight off this threat and strengthen liberal democracy for the future.
