The term “alt-right” first found its way into the mainstream media during the 2016 United States presidential elections. At that time, the American media depicted the alt-right as a modern reincarnation of earlier US white supremacist movements. But, as political science professor George Hawley explains, the core of the US alt-right’s ideals actually come from Europe, where, since the late 1960s, the far right has worked to recast racist and antidemocratic principles as a philosophically-founded fight for cultural preservation.

In this article, you will learn

  • Where the intellectual roots of America’s alt-right originate and
