    The French New Right: Multiculturalism of the Right and the Recognition/Exclusionism Syndrome.Alberto Spektorowski - 2012 - Journal of Global Ethics 8 (1):41-61.
    This article studies a seeming paradox ? the adoption of multi-culturalist strategies and arguments by the neo-fascist European New Right. Why would neo-fascists adopt such a theoretical framework, and why has multiculturalism failed in Europe? In this article, I argue that the European New Right employs a multiculturalism framework, which I define as a recognition/exclusionist one, in order to create a new discourse of ?legitimate exclusionism? of non-authentic European immigrants. In short, multiculturalism, by celebrating differences between ethnic and cultural groups, (...)

    Fascism and Post-National Europe: Drieu La Rochelle and Alain de Benoist.Alberto Spektorowski - 2016 - Theory, Culture and Society 33 (1):115-138.
    The idea of a Europe of its peoples, or a post-nation-state ‘regionalist Europe’, is largely applauded by radical democratic and post-colonial theorists who considered this development an antidote to nationalism. What is hardly heeded by liberal as well as left-wing intellectuals, however, is that several fascist and neo-fascist intellectuals during the inter-war and the post-war eras have also been attracted by the idea of a post-nation-state, ‘Europe des peoples’. By analyzing the complementary ideologies of two French intellectuals associated with fascism (...)

    The Ideological Roots of Right-Wing Ethnoregionalism and the Civic Republican Critique.Alberto Spektorowski - 2007 - Politics and Ethics Review 3 (2):253-277.
    The rise of regional identities in Europe is a process largely welcomed by liberals and especially applauded by radical democratic and postcolonial theorists. Yet this trend towards post-nation-state identity is not only attractive to democratic and postcolonial theories, but is also an integral part of current neo-fascist ideologies. This article examines the intellectual origins of rightwing ethnoregionalism and the idea of ‘exclusionist multiculturalism’ through the works of Pierre Drieu La Rochelle and Alain de Benoist. It also compares the idea of (...)

    The Making of an Argentine Fascist. Leopoldo Lugones: From Revolutionary Left to Radical Nationalism.Alberto Spektorowski - 1996 - History of Political Thought 17 (1):79-108.
    This analysis seeks to contribute to the understanding of the development of fascism by studying the ideological left-to-right evolution of an intellectual from a peripheral country. I suggest that this intellectual evolution proves the universality of the ideological developments that preceded fascism, and sheds new light on the ideological interaction between fascism as a European political culture and local nationalist uprisings against liberal democracy and dependence on foreign financial power.
