Abstract

For a long time meaningless, the German "National Democratic Party" (NPD) is cast in a new light: it is modernized and its programme is internationalized. As a new social movement the party is practising an active politic of demonstration, arousing interest in some East-German regions. However, there are limits to the party's popularity. One of these limits lies in their own weaknesses and the other is rooted in Germany's recent experience with totalitarian National Socialism. The NPD links itself to the new dimension of globalization in the present European democracies by taking a confrontational stance on the economic, political, and cultural dimensions of globalization. However, a closer analysis reveals that the NPD positions itself in continuity with the ideology of National Socialism. In a European context, the NPD is not a unique phenomenon. International developments within right-wing extremism implicate a type of fascism as a new social movement.
