"Racism and the rise of the far right in Britain are often discussed but rarely understood. Daniel Trilling is an exception, writing about these controversial issues authoritatively and eloquently. With the threat posed by prejudice and bigotry ever greater at a time of economic crisis, Trilling's voice must be heard." Owen Jones, author of Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class "Daniel Trilling is a serious reporter who is not afraid to get close to a difficult subject and ask awkward questions. The result is journalism of the best kind - it is vivid and readable, and it also makes you think." Brian Cathcart, author of The Case of Stephen LawrenceVom Verlag:
The past decade in the UK has seen the rise of the British National Party, the country's most successful ever far-right political movement, and the emergence of the anti-Islamic English Defence League. Taking aim at asylum seekers, Muslims, "enforced multiculturalism" and benefit "scroungers," these groups have been working overtime to shift the blame for the nation's ills onto the shoulders of the vulnerable. Drawing on archival research and extensive interviews with key figures, such as BNP leader Nick Griffin, Daniel Trilling shows how previously marginal characters from a tiny neo-Nazi subculture have managed to exploit the tensions arising from the War on Terror and from steepening economic inequality. Bloody Nasty People calls time on the complacency that has given the far right space to grow and provides fresh insights into the dynamics of political extremism.
