Despite its liberal reputation, Scandinavia has been a breeding ground for both right-wing populist and anti-immigrant parties and the violent subcultures of neo-Nazi skinheads and terrorists.
This is the first full-length study of this topic in English and examines the history, recent re-emergence and violent strategies of the extreme right, as well as general racism among the Scandinavian public. This is a unique contribution to a widely studied and fascinating area, which contains important lessons for all concerned.
