'Right-wing Extremism in Contemporary Germany provides readers with valuable insights into how the far right in Germany is challenging the political order on the streets, in the media and at the ballot box. In this well written and carefully researched book, Gerard Braunthal shows that the 'Berlin Republic' is actively responding to the threat and will be unlikely go the way of the Weimar Republic, even as it experiences the worst economic crisis in decades.' - David Patton, Connecticut College, USA 'Gerard Braunthal's sweeping study of right-wing extremism in Germany since 1990 is based upon massive research. It is distinguished by the comprehensiveness of its treatment and the meticulousness of its scholarship. This volume will stand for many, many years as THE standard work in English on this theme.' - Stephen Kalberg, Boston University, USA
