Searching for Lord Haw-Haw is an authoritative account of the political lives of William Joyce. He became notorious as a fascist, an anti-Semite and then as a Second World War traitor when, assuming the persona of Lord Haw-Haw, he acted as a radio propagandist for the Nazis. It is an endlessly compelling story of simmering hope, intense frustration, renewed anticipation and ultimately catastrophic failure. This fully-referenced work is the first attempt to place Joyce at the centre of the turbulent, traumatic and influential events through which he lived. It challenges existing biographies, which have reflected not only Joyce’s frequent calculated deceptions but also the suspect claims advanced by his family, friends and apologists. By exploring his rampant, increasingly influential narcissism it also offers a pioneering analysis of Joyce’s personality and exposes its dangerous, destructive consequences. "What a saga my life would make!" Joyce wrote from prison just before his execution. Few would disagree with him.

The book discusses the far right in the contemporary Portugal (1945-2015) within three different periods: the end of the authoritarian regime of António de Oliveira Salazar (1945-1974), the transition to democracy after the coup d’état of April 25th (1974-1982) and the democratic regime until the present (1982-2015). The analysis focuses on political groups and parties, social movements, ideologies, intellectuals and publications acting at the extreme right of the political spectrum of the Portuguese authoritarian regime and of the democratic regime, both on a national and international level. The book also contextualizes the Portuguese far right within the political thought and the organisational models of the wider European extreme right. A qualitative in-depth case study and the outcome of ten years of research, this book offers analysis of historical and contemporary primary sources, previously unexplored archives and in-depth interviews. Assessing the extent to which the behaviour of the far right is altered in different political environments and situations, this book makes an innovative and unique contribution to scholarship on the extreme right within southern Europe and will be of interest to students and scholars researching extreme right politics, as well as European history and politics more generally.

This book is the first comprehensive academic study of German right-wing terrorism since the early 1960s available in the English language. It offers a unique in-depth analysis of German violent, extremist right-wing movements, terrorist events, groups, networks and individuals. In addition, the book discusses the so-called ‘National Socialist Underground’ (NSU) terror cell, which was uncovered in late 2011 by the authorities. The NSU had been active for over a decade and had killed at least ten people, as well as executing numerous bombings and bank robberies. With an examination of the group’s support network and the reasons behind the failure of the German authorities, this book sheds light on right-wing terrorist group structures, tactics and target groups in Germany. The book also contains a complete list of all the German right-wing terrorist groups and incidents since the Second World War. Based on the most detailed dataset of right-wing terrorism in Germany, this book offers highly valuable insights into this specific form of political violence and terrorism, which has been widely neglected in international terrorism research.

This book is the first conceptual and comparative empirical work on the relation between corporatism and dictatorships, bringing both fields under a joint conceptual umbrella. It operationalizes the concepts of social and political corporatism, diffusion and critical junctures and their particular application to the study of Fascist-Era dictatorships. The book’s carefully constructed balance between theory and case studies offers an important contribution to the study of dictatorships and corporatism. Through the development of specific indicators in ‘critical junctures’ of regime change and institutionalization, as well as qualitative data based on different sources such as party manifestos, constitutions and constitutional reforms, expert commissions and the legislation that introduces corporatism, this book traces transnational sources of inspiration in different national contexts. By bringing together a number of both established and new voices from across the field, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of fascism, dictatorship and modern European politics.

English summary: This edition of Aurel Kolnai's War against the West (1938) brings one of the first English-language critiques of Nazi ideology to a German-speaking audience interested in contemporary approaches to critically examining Nazism. Kolnai's main goal was to warn the Western world that Nazism threatened its core and its way of life. He accomplished this in his discussion of the basic elements of Nazi ideology, such as anti-Semitism, racial nationalism, and the anti-liberal concept of a people's community (Volksgemeinschaft), which, in his view, amounted to replacing Christianity with the political religion of race. German description: Diese historisch-kritische deutsche Ausgabe des 1938 auf Englisch erschienenen Buches von Aurel Kolnai The War against the West schliesst eine Lucke in der Dokumentation der zeitgenossischen Auseinandersetzungen mit den Ideen des Nationalsozialismus. Kolnai stellte die Unvereinbarkeit des Nationalsozialismus mit dem christlich-humanistischen Wertesystem heraus und hob dessen fundamentalen Gegensatz zur westlichen Demokratie, ihren christlichen Grundlagen und sozialistischen Elementen hervor. Sein Buch verstand Kolnai als Appell an den Westen, auf die existenzielle Bedrohung des burgerlichen Gesellschafts- und Wertesystems durch den Nationalsozialismus politisch angemessen zu reagieren. Der Nationalsozialismus musse ernst genommen werden, anstatt ihn vulgarmarxistisch als wenig originelle Variante eines aggressiv auf seine Existenzkrise reagierenden Kapitalismus zu unterschatzen oder als rein destruktiven Nihilismus zu verkennen. Mit traditionellen politischen Begriffen wie reaktionar und konservativ jedenfalls sei das radikal Neue des Nazismus, das Kolnai an der rassenbiologischen Umgestaltung der deutschen Gesellschaft festmachte, nicht zu fassen. Als Ausdruck deutschen Geistes sei der Nationalsozialismus tief in deutscher Geschichte verwurzelt, auch wenn er keineswegs, wie von ihm beansprucht, Inkarnation des Deutschen sei.

Den Berichten ”von der Front“ in Wort und Bild kommt seit jeher entscheidende Bedeutung für die zeitgenössische Wahrnehmung und Legitimation eines Krieges zu. Diese erste Geschichte der Kriegsberichterstattung stellt deshalb die Akteure selbst in den Mittelpunkt: die Wort- und Bildkorrespondenten, ihre Wahrnehmungsweisen und ihre Praktiken der Berichterstattung; sowie die Militärs, ihre zentralen Subjekte und zunehmend ihre Kontrolleure. Während im 18. Jahrhundert noch offizielle Bulletins aus der Feder von Offizieren die Berichterstattung dominierten, etablierte sich in der Epoche der internationalisierten Pressemärkte der Beruf des zivilen Kriegsberichterstatters. Die Bedingungen, unter denen Journalisten und Fotografen im Krieg arbeiteten, ihr Umgang mit Kontrollmaßnahmen und Zensur und die Veränderung der Medienlandschaften haben zu einer Wahrnehmung des Berichterstatters als ”Augenzeuge“ und ”Aufklärer“ beigetragen. Mit diesem Buch liegt nun erstmals ein fundiertes Überblickswerk vor, das vom Siebenjährigen Krieg (1756-1763) bis zum 2003 begonnenen Irakkrieg 250 Jahre internationaler Frontberichterstattung erschließt.
