Honors Book Discussion with Dr. Cas Mudde

October 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

REGISTRATION REQUIRED – All book discussion sign-ups announced at the beginning of the semester

  • Book: THE FAR RIGHT TODAY by Cas Mudde
  • Discussion Leader: Dr. Cas Mudde, Stanley Wade Shelton UGAF Professor of International Affairs (and author of the book)
  • Date: Wednesday, October 26, 6-8 p.m.
  • Location: Moore Hall 116
  • Description: The far right is back with a vengeance. After several decades at the political margins, far-right politics has again taken center stage. In this timely book, leading global expert on political extremism Cas Mudde provides a concise overview of the fourth wave of postwar far-right politics, exploring its history, ideology, organization, causes, and consequences, as well as the responses available to civil society, party, and state actors to challenge its ideas and influence. What defines this current far-right renaissance, Mudde argues, is its mainstreaming and normalization within the contemporary political landscape. Challenging orthodox thinking on the relationship between conventional and far-right politics, Mudde offers a complex and insightful picture of one of the key political challenges of our time.
