In this Introduction to The Far Right and the Environment: Politics, Discourse and Communication, Bernhard Forchtner starts by laying out a rational for why far-right environmental communication should be thoroughly analysed. Although the phenomenon is rarely investigated, far-right environmental communication lies at the intersection of two of today’s key crises: the political crisis of liberal democracy and a series of environmental crises. As such, analysing this communication will provides an important view of this actor and will illuminate ideas and practices of the far right. Subsequently, the chapter defines the political spectrum analysed in this volume, the far right, spanning from radical-right, anti-liberal-democratic actors to the anti-democratic extreme right. Next, the chapter provides a review of the literature on far-right views on the natural environment, ranging from historical to contemporary sources before closing with an overview of the subsequent 18 chapters.
