Review Quotes
Jamin's exciting new structural and theoretical analysis helps explain why right-wing scapegoating and conspiracy theories are so popular across different cultures and succeed in recruiting people into misguided and socially destructive political action. Chip Berlet, Political Research Associates, Somerville, Massachusetts and co-author of Right-Wing Populism in America

Main Description
This book explores the importance of conspiracy rhetoric within populist and far right speeches in Europe and the United States. It shows how a "New World Order" plot give to populist and far right parties an opportunity to develop a rhetoric based on the rescue of democracy despite their obvious rejection of the values and principles which set up democracy.
