The growing influence of Russia on the Western far right has been much discussed in the media recently. This book is the first detailed inquiry into what has been a neglected but critically important trend: the growing links between Russian actors and Western far right activists, publicists, ideologues, and politicians.

This book is the first detailed inquiry into what has been a neglected but critically important trend: the growing links between Russian actors and Western far right activists, publicists, ideologues, and politicians. The author uses a range of sources including interviews, video footage, leaked communications, official statements and press coverage in order to discuss both historical and contemporary Russia in terms of its relationship with the Western far right. Initial contacts between Russian political actors and Western far right activists were established in the early 1990s, but these contacts were low profile. As Moscow has become more anti-Western, these contacts have become more intense and have operated at a higher level. The book shows that the Russian establishment was first interested in using the Western far right to legitimise Moscow’s politics and actions both domestically and internationally, but more recently Moscow has begun to support particular far right political forces to gain leverage on European politics and undermine the liberal-democratic consensus in the West. Contributing to ongoing scholarly debates about Russia’s role in the world, its strategies aimed at securing legitimation of Putin’s regime both internationally and domestically, modern information warfare and propaganda, far right politics and activism in the West, this book draws on theories and methods from history, political science, area studies, and media studies and will be of interest to students, scholars, activists and practitioners in these areas.

    Not easy to read at all, definitely not a book for a good night's sleep. Will overwhelm you with lots of details, names, dates and concepts. However, it is most probably the best work you can find on Russia´s relationship with different far-right politicians and movements in the Western Europe. Superbly researched academic work, highly recommended to anyone interested in contemporary European far-right movements Not easy to read at all, definitely not a book for a good night's sleep.

    A most informative book on an important subject. The author describes the connections between extreme far right groups in the west and in Russia and how the Russian leadership is reaching out to these groups. He covers the networks well but he could have done more to analyse the common ideas and policies. However this is in my view sofar the best that has been written on the subject. Should be read together with the brilliant historian Timothy Snyder’s essay ”On Tyranny”.
