This book provides a comprehensive history of the ideas and
ideologues associated with the racial fascist tradition in Britain.
It charts the evolution of the British extreme right from its
post-war genesis after 1918 to its present-day incarnations. The
book details the ideological and strategic evolution of British
fascism through the prism of its principal leaders and the
movements with which they were associated. Taking a collective
biographical approach, the book focuses on the political careers of
six principal ideologues and leaders, Arnold Leese (1878-1956); Sir
Oswald Mosley (1896-1980); A. K. Chesterton (1899-1973); Colin
Jordan (1923-2009); John Tyndall (1934-2005); and Nick Griffin
(1959 -), in order to study the evolution of the racial ideology of
British Fascism, from overtly biological conceptions of 'white
supremacy' through 'racial nationalism' and latterly to 'cultural'
arguments regarding 'ethno-nationalism'. Drawing on extensive
archival research and often obscure primary texts and propaganda as
well as the official records of the British government and its
security services, this is the definitive historical account of
Britain's extreme right and will be essential reading for all
students and scholars of race relations, extremism and fascism.
