Dark Side of Europe New Edition

Dark Side of Europe New Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in its second edition, this text charts the growth of fascism through the decades following the end of World War II, to its present day resurgence in the "new Europe". It paints a sombre picture of a Europe threatened by racist politics and terrorism, and struggling to come to terms with the problems of living in a multiracial society. Concentrating on the themes of racism, the rewriting of history, the rise of the New Right, terrorism and secret service corruption, it looks in detail at the Le Pen phenomenon in France, recent events in Germany and Bosnia and extreme Right terrorism in Italy.

Review:

"The dark side of Europe is the continuing presence of racism and fascism, especially in the forms of discrimination, hostility to immigration, and terrorism. Harris wants his readers to know that these evils 'did not die with Hitler and Mussolini.' The author, a senior advisor to the Socialist president of the European Parliament, was inspired to write this book by the election of Jean-Marie Le Pen and other extreme rightists to that prolix body in Strasbourg in 1984, and their creation of the parliamentary Group of the European Right. In response, leftists there conducted a year-long inquiry to expose the 'real nature' of these rightists. Harris draws heavily on the inquiry's findings and concludes
that the magnitude of the racist/fascist problem means that European society is 'sick.' In the author's opinion, the best, if not the only, cure for this dark illness is a strong dose of Socialist policies." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
