Produktbeschreibung
This volume considers from a risk perspective the current phenomenon of the new Alt-Right authoritarianism and whether it represents 'real' democracy or an unacceptable hegemony potentially resulting in elected dictatorships and abuses as well as dysfunctional government. Contributing authors represent an eclectic range of disciplines, including cognitive, organizational and political psychology, sociology, history, political science, international relations, linguistics and discourse analysis, and risk analysis. The Alt-Right threats and risk exposures, whether to democracy, human rights, law and order, social welfare, racial harmony, the economy, national security, the environment, and international relations, are identified and analyzed across a number of selected countries, including the US, UK, Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, and Russia. Potential strategies to limit the Alt-Right threat are proposed.

Rezensionen
"This looks to be a most timely examination of the nature and rise of the Alt-Right phenomenon. The fact that it deals with trends on both sides of the Atlantic, whilst offering political and psychological context, will doubtless help to ensure a wide readership. The chapters on the United States deal with highly topical and important issues, and as someone who teaches US Politics and undergraduate and post-graduate level, I can see how these topics would be very suitable for classroom use. I very much enjoyed reading the material and found it to be engaging and informative throughout." Dr Clodagh Harrington, De Montfort University
