Colin Jordan and Britain's Neo-Nazi Movement
Author(s): Paul Jackson

Colin Jordan and Britain's Neo-Nazi Movement casts fresh light on one of post-war Britain's most notorious fascists, using him to examine the contemporary history of the extreme right. The book explores the wide range of neo-Nazi groups that Colin Jordan led, contributed to and inspired throughout his time as Britain's foremost promoter of Nazi ideology.

In a period stretching from the close of the Second World War right up to the 2000s, Colin Jordan became politically engaged with a multitude of Nazi-inspired extremist groups, either as leader or as a key protagonist. Moreover, Jordan also developed critical relationships with larger, competitor extreme-right organisations and parties, including the Mosley's Union Movement, the National Front and the most recent incarnation of the British National Party. He fostered a number of transnational links throughout his years of activism as well, especially with American neo-Nazis. In recent years, his writings and somewhat idealised profile have been adopted by more contemporary extremist organisations, such as the British People's Party and a rekindled British Movement, who look to Jordan as an inspirational figure for their own reconfigurations of a National Socialist agenda.

By examining this history, drawing on a wide range of fresh primary sources, Colin Jordan and Britain's Neo-Nazi Movement offers a new analysis on the nature and workings of Nazi-inspired political extremism in post-war Britain. It is an important study for anyone interested in the history of fascism, extreme ideologies and the political and social history of Britain since the Second World War.



Review(s):

“With the current upsurge of the Right, this is a timely study of one of the most prominent leaders of neo-Nazism in postwar Britain … This sophisticated study not only illuminates how the far Right operated, but also provides an excellent discussion of its ideas. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Most levels/libraries.” – CHOICE

“[An] important, thoroughly researched, and lucid book that presents convincing arguments with far-reaching implications … Jackson displays an excellent grasp of his topic, his style is highly accessible … [A] book that makes a valuable contribution to the historiography of fascism (and other extreme ideologies) and the social and political history of postwar Britain.” – Journal of British Studies
