About this book

This book is the first to elaborate on radical and extreme right movements in contemporary Australia. It brings together leading scholars to present cutting edge research on various facets and manifestations of Australia’s diverse far-right, which has gained unprecedented public presence and visibility since the mid-2010s. 
The thematic breadth of the chapters in this volume reflects the complexity of the far-right in Australia, ranging from the attitudes of far-right populist party voters and the role of far-right groups in anti-mosque protests, to online messaging and rhetoric of radical and extreme right-wing movements. The contributions are theoretically grounded and come from a range of disciplines, including media and cultural studies, sociology, politics, and urban studies, exploring issue of far-right activism on the micro and macro level, with both qualitative and quantitative research methods.

Reviews

“Tragically timely, this must-read volume introduces the range of anti-Islamic, cultural supremacy, and racist movements in Australia. Essential for understanding the threat of far-right extremism and developing strategies to combat it.” (Professor Kathleen Blee, University of Pittsburgh, USA)

“A good empirical grasp of the far-right in Australia is crucial, and the authors of this book can only be congratulated for contributing to this important task.” (Professor Ghassan Hage, University of Melbourne, Australia)

“The authors in this collection do more than observe, they are in the thick of responding to the far-right … The book provides robust insights for much needed reflections on the far-right in Australia.” (Professor Kevin Dunn, Western Sydney University, Australia)
