Political extremism has its wider historical and social context. There are shared factors in each of the V4 countries – Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia – that serve as the basis for manifestations of extremism in public and political life after the fall of the Communist regimes. They include hyperboles in the politics of national symbols, ambiguous or even conflicting reading of the past, revanchist attitude among some segments of the society, the traditions of nationalist politics, tensions characteristic for multi-ethnic societies that had lived for years under closed regimes, and confessional conflicts. They are essentially based on resistance to the liberal democratic West.
The book is an outcome of a project Extremism and its revival in public debate and political movements in Central Europe.
