The French Front National (FN) is considered by many analysts to be the prototype of what is now an expansive family of modern radical right political parties in Europe. Founded in 1972, the FN has recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. This e-book by Extremis Project comprises a series of essays by leading academics that examine the party’s past, present and future as it passes this significant milestone under the new leadership of Marine Le Pen. Included are contributions from: Marcel Lubbers, Gilles Ivandi, Jocelyn Evans, James Shields, Cas Mudde, Nonna Mayer, Paul Hainsworth, Bruno Jeanbart and Birgitta Orfali, as well as a foreword by Laurent Bouvet.
