The far right and the environment : politics, discourse and communication / edited by Bernhard Forchtner.

von Forchtner, Bernhard [Hrsg.].
Materialtyp: materialTypeLabelBuchReihen: Routledge studies in facism and the far right.Verlag: London ; New York: Routledge, 2020Beschreibung: XVI, 333 p.ISBN: 978-1-138-47789-6; 9781138477896.Schlagwörter: Umweltpolitik | Bewegungen, Soziale und politische | Rechte Parteien und OrganisationenZusammenfassung: "At the beginning of the 21st century, both the crisis of liberal democracy, as visible in the rise of far-right actors in Europe and the alt-right phenomenon in the United States, and environmental crises, from declining biodiversity to climate change, are increasingly in the public spotlight. Whilst both areas have been analysed extensively on their own, The Far Right and the Environment: Politics, Discourse and Communication provides much-needed insights into their intersection by illuminating the environmental communication of far-right party and non-party actors in Europe and the United States. Although commonly perceived as a 'left-wing' issue today, concerns over the natural environment by the far right have a centuries-old, ideology-driven history. Thus, it is not surprising that some members of the far right offer distinctive ecological visions of communal life, though, for example, climate-change scepticism is at times voiced too. Investigating this range of stances within their discourse about the natural environment provides a window into the wider politics of the far right and points to a close connection between the politics of identity and the imagination of nature. Connecting the fields of environmental communication and study of the far right, contributions to this edited volume therefore offer timely assessments of this often-overlooked dimension of far-right politics"-- Provided by publisher.
