2018 was a tumultuous year in global politics. Starting with rise of the Lega Nord in Italy and ending with the election of Jair Bolsanaro in Brazil, it has never been such a pertinent time to study the radical right. This Yearbook pulls together the best commentary and analysis from an international consortium of expert scholars examining the ebb and flow of radical right movements from around the world. Starting with a concise analysis of key definitions of the radical right and historical precursors, it takes the reader on a journey through European, then American and finally through non-Western manifestations of the radical right. The book ends with a thematic analysis of key tactics and issues related to the radical right – including terrorism, hate crime and social media. Such a survey provides a unique snapshot of global developments in 2018 – useful to scholars, students, practitioners and interested members of the public alike.
