Product Details


“Racism, for Liz Fekete, is the breeding ground of fascism, and her struggle to combat both—on the ground and in her writings—has earned her the reputation of being an intrepid organiser, an inspirational speaker and an organic intellectual.”
—A. Sivanandan, Director of the Institute of Race Relations

“For twenty-five years, Fekete relentlessly monitored Europe’s far right while the continent’s leaders preferred to look away. With right-wing extremism finally recognised by the mainstream as a fundamental threat to Europe’s future, her indictment of those who enabled, amplified, and aided the rise of the hard right is an essential contribution to the defense of democratic values.”
—Arun Kundnani, author of The Muslims are Coming

“For the twenty-five years I have known Liz Fekete she has been a tireless anti-racist and anti-fascist fighter, as well as a people’s intellectual and a political inspiration. Fekete brings that cumulative experience, insight and commitment to her brilliant new book, Europe’s Fault Lines, which maps the shifting terrain of racism and right wing populism in Europe, as well as continued forms of resistance. This book not only paints a gut-wrenching portrait of the vulgarity and violence of Neoliberalism, but through her clarity of analysis, Fekete gives us sustenance for the struggles that lay ahead.”
—Barbara Ransby, author of Eslanda: The Large and Unconventional Life of Mrs Paul Robeson

“A relatively brief book, but it makes important points that are often left out of the discussion.”
—Daniel Trilling, Prospect

“In Europe’s Fault Lines, Liz Fekete has not only written an excellent study of how racism is once again being normalised but how, in turn, it is acting as cloak under which fascism is resurgent.”
—Nicolas Lalaguna, Morning Star

“Provokes a range of emotional responses, from rage to helplessness, but closes leaving the reader equipped with an intellectual arsenal to begin resisting fascism in all its guises.”
Peace News

“Fekete provides an accessible and stimulating discussion on the roles of the state, intellectuals, the media, and uneven development in the triumph of the right in our age of crisis and rage … Europe’s Fault Lines is a wealth of resource on one of the most disturbing aspects of our age of rage.”
The Bullet

A perspicacious enquiry into the ‘fomenting of a reactionary cultural revolution’ over the last few decades … provid[ing] the reader with a clear picture of the state of political play in Europe.

“An informed, vigorous and compelling book.”
Dublin Review of Books

“A timely contribution to spotlight the worrying increase of institutional racism in nation-states, the complicity of mainstream parties in enabling the rise of the far right and, especially, a radical critique of current “exit extremism” programmes”
Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
