    Book Information

    Description

    This volume presents ground-breaking analyses of how the far right represents natural environments and environmentalism around the globe. Images are not simply pervasive in our increasingly visual culture - they are a means of proposing worlds to viewers. Accordingly, the book approaches the visual not as something 'extra' or 'illustrative' but as a key means of producing identities and 'doing politics'. Putting visuality centre stage and covering political parties and non-party actors in Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and the United States, contributors demonstrate the various ways in which the far right articulates natural environments and the rampant environmental crises of the twenty-first century, providing essential insights into such multifaceted politics.

    Reviews

    'In the growing literature on the far right and the environment, too few works centre the visual politics that are so integral to extremist appeals. Forchtner and his collaborators work to address this lacuna. Novel in its focus, global in its scope, and rigorous in its analysis, Visualising far-right environments makes a necessary and compelling contribution to our understanding of the far right today.'

    John Hultgren, Bennington College

    'A welcome, timely, and original contribution. This set of diverse global case studies richly analyzes the evergreen appeal of environmental and ecological claims-and their visual representations-to burgeoning far right movements around the world. An essential read.'

    Cynthia Miller-Idriss, Founding Director of the Polarization and Extremism Research & Innovation Lab (PERIL) at the American University in Washington, DC
