This is the first paperback edition of the most comprehensive history of fascist movements in Britain. It investigates fascist activities in the period of turmoil leading to the Second World War, and raises disturbing questions: how far was the British establishment involved? What were the links with Nazi Germany? What were the plans for the future of British Jews? How much did the British Secret Service know? Despite the revelation of the horrors of Nazi Germany, British Fascism survived 1945. The author discusses the organization, aims and techniques behind British Fascism, including the formation of the National Front. This revised edition analyzes the period from 1984 to the present, including the effect of the end of the Cold War and the collapse of Communism in Russia and Europe, the disturbing of illiberal nationalism and the growth of neo-fascism, anti-Semitism and racialism expressed in, for example, anti-immigrant agitation and policies.
