Does patriotic pride inevitably develop into nationalistic aggression? Is this exacerbated by the global outreach of the media? And what is the relationship between mainstream politics and increasingly vocal far-right groups in Britain and the United States, Germany and Russia? Nationalist Myths and the Modern Media addresses these questions from a variety of angles, exploring topics ranging from the War on Terror to Holocaust denial, from the "sanctity" of Rasputin to the "martyrdom" of Rudolf Hess.
