Right-Wing Terrorism in the 21st Century : The 'National Socialist Underground' and the History of
about this item
This book is the first comprehensive academic study of German right-wing terrorism since the early 1960s in the English language and offers a unique in depth analysis of the National Socialist Underground terror cell, uncovered in late 2011 by the authorities after 14 years of unhindered operations, during which the group killed at least 10 people, committed two dozen bank robberies and two bombings.
Divided into two parts, this book includes both a history of right-wing terrorism in Germany and a discussion of the National Socialist Underground in terms of its support network, its operations and its connections to national and international groups. Concluding with a typology of right-wing terrorism, including methods, structures, ideologies and tactics, and offering a complete list of all German right-wing terrorist groups and incidents in the last 55 years, this book will be essential reading for students, scholars and policy makers in the areas of terrorism, right-wing politics and European politics more generally.
