Voice of Modern Hatred: Encounters with Europe's New Right by Nicholas Fraser
What are the people behind extreme right-wing politics really like? The end of the European twentieth century was marked by a resurgence of extreme right-wing politics and, in Bosnia and Kosovo, atrocities comparable to the most degrading events of the Second World War. Nicholas Fraser hasspent three years travelling across Europe to meet, confront, and try to understand the personalities behind this resurgence. In trying to comprehend such people, the enemies of democracy, Fraser attempts to answer whether European civilization is seriously threatened at a time when we are trying to move closer together. Why do Europeans find it so hard to countenance foreigners in their midst and accept immigration? The Voice of Modern Hatred is an attempt to dissect the personalities who disseminate division and racism. It is also a powerfully disturbing picture of a fractured Europe as we enter a new millennium.
