Management of Hate : Nation, Affect, and the Governance of Right-Wing Extremism in Germany (Paperback) - image 1 of 1

About this item

The author spent a year and a half with young right-wing extremist groups and their social workers in an East Berlin district, Treptow-Köpenick, to understand their place in post-reunification German nationhood and nationalism, and he argues that the government's policies foster their right-wing extremism, racist nationalism, and racist and political violence. He considers how the government regulates the public in terms of hate, as a kind of affective governance. After providing historical and theoretical background, he discusses how the right-wing extremist youth describe their relationship to cultural and ethnicized difference, their identification and self-identification as easterners, and their feelings of difference from immigrants and the left; the governmental regimes, including law, law enforcement, surveillance, and social work, aimed at governing right-wing delinquency; and how the management of hate attempts to strengthen broader affective publics against illicit forms of nationalism, including through campaigns for affective orientations to cultural difference at the neighborhood level through tolerance and multicultural diversity, and the political regimes that define how the nation is portrayed visually.
