Transnational neo-Nazism in the USA, United Kingdom and Australia

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report

Abstract

Neo-Nazism is often presented as the most taboo and dangerous form of far right activism. News reports featuring neo-Nazis regularly focus on hate crimes, violence, and terrorism, as well as their fascination with cultic. However, these types of reports, sometimes featuring excellent investigative journalism, offer only a partial picture of this often-misunderstood milieu, and can sensationalize as much as inform. This article offers a deep dive into contemporary neo-Nazi culture, and assesses the risks posed by contemporary neo-Nazi groups by exploring the relationship between extreme ideas and extreme actions.
