There is a detailed German review for this work. Read here
Ralf Havertz gives an excellent overview of the phenomenon of radical right populism in Germany. The German party AfD is at the center of interest, however earlier populist parties in Germany and current extra-parliamentary movements are taken into account as well. On the basis of a discussion of the literature on populism within the social sciences Havertz analyzes a variety of central topics and demonstrates the characteristics of the German case of (radical right) populism. The book is a great starting point to understand the rise of the AfD in Germany and from where to explore the topic further.
