"Powerful, timely, important. A much needed analysis." Elif Shafak "The far-right is mutating and Cas Mudde offers the best guide to understanding its growth and impact." Ryan Heath, POLITICO "Cas Mudde is one of the most clear-eyed, trenchant analysts of politics in the West. His latest work is packed with insight and offers a vital guide into the array of nativist and extremist factions shaping the global zeitgeist." Ishaan Tharoor, The Washington Post "The Far Right Today is a must-read for everyone who is not numb to the authoritarian forces challenging our values and dismantling liberal democracies. Cas Mudde provides unique insights to the underlying reasons for the rise and normalisation of the far right and brilliantly places the phenomena in historical context." Tanja Fajon, MEP and Vice-President of the S & D Group "While many Americans are driven mad by the nightly news, Cas Mudde provides an anti-dote the global and historical context for the rise of the right in his insightful and accessible book. The radical right has become mainstreamed, Mudde argues, posing a historic challenge with no easy solutions. This book is essential to anyone organizing working people or engaged in politics." Karen Nussbaum, Working America, AFL-CIO "A powerful wake-up call." Morning Star "Timely" Communication Director "A must read" Gothenburg Post 'one of the best books I have read this year' Democracy Paradox 'a beautiful, concise and very accessible book that provides excellent insight into why the radical right has become so influential' Clingendael Spectator "an indispensable guide to extreme right-wing parties, written with admirable precision." Edward Luce, Financial Times
