The Populist Radical Right in Poland

Rafal Pankowski, author of The Populist Radical Right in Poland, recently commented on Nigel Farage's backing of a populist Polish priest who is widely viewed as homophobic.

The UK Independence Party has oftentimes been accused of homophobia, despite its leader's eagerness to portray the party as tolerant of gay people at home, due to its alliances with European parties whose members are openly hostile to homosexuals. View the article here.

Pankowski's book examines the rapid growth of organized radical nationalism on the political level in Poland, showing its origins, its internal dynamics and the historical, political, social and cultural context that has made it possible.
