Katrine Fangen: "Book review: Cynthia Miller-Idriss, Hate in the Homeland: The New Global Far Right"

Katrine Fangen has recently reviewed the book "Hate in the Homeland: The new global far right" by Cynthia Miller-Idriss. Published in Young

Young written in bold, yellow letters on purple background.


As far-right movements are gaining ground, views previously defined as extreme are achieving increasing acceptance among broad sectors of the population. Miller-Idriss' new book is, according to Katrine Fangen in this book review, a good introduction to this process known as ‘mainstreaming’. Miller-Idriss describes far-right mobilization in contexts that have been little studied in this connection previously, such as clothing brands, mixed martial arts (MMA) clubs, university campuses, and micro-communities that overlap with elements of the far right, such as groups of doomsday preppers and survivalists.
