In this edited volume, the contributors examine far-right extremist terrorism in America and Europe, beginning with the nature of the threat, their ideologies, how adherents become radicalized into extremist violence, and how some of their members can be influenced to disengage from such violent activities. Case studies cover far right extremists in America, England and Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Anders Breivik’s attacks in Norway. A separate chapter compares far-right extremism with Jihadi violence. A concluding chapter places the European experience within the larger framework of the Arab Spring’s protest movements.
