Lions of the North explores the ways anti-immigrant, anti-liberal activists in the Nordic countries are transforming their identities through music, focusing on the role of new music in their attempts to escape association with skinhead hooliganism and forge alternative reputations as refined activists. Author Benjamin Teitelbaum not only exposes the dynamic relationship between music and politics, but also the ways radical nationalism is adapting to succeed
in some of the most liberal societies in the world.

Patterns of Prejudice Teitelbaum is an ethnomusicologist who has adopted a refreshingly non-adversarial, multi-year, 'collaborative' ethnographic approach to interacting with and gathering information on his subjects. In a field in which far too many researchers violate normal scholarly standards by embracing a highly partisan and indeed overtly hostile activist posture towards their subjects of study rather than a relatively detached, disinterested or empathetic posture, this is to be

Scandinavian Studies elaborate and intimate ... Benjamin R. Teitelbaum has initiated a dialogue on what constitutes the new nationalism. If we are willing to engage in this dialogue with him, we need to step out of the view of politics as merely concerning the game of party politics, and widen our horizons to consider the wider societal implications of the new Nordic right nationalism. This move means realizing that populism is not merely about brutish skinheads, and that it operates in
subtle ways not alien to but conversely ingrained in the political mainstream.

Jan Sverre Knudsen, Professor, Oslo and Akershus University College Lions of the North is a deftly crafted and immensely captivating account of how music plays a key part in the inner workings of Nordic radical nationalist groups. By convincingly arguing for, and consistently applying a "collaborative" approach to ethnographic fieldwork, Teitelbaum avoids any notions of underlying advocacy, a tendency which characterizes many studies on extremist groups. This fearless and thoughtful approach transcends existing scholarship,
opening for innovative perspectives that challenge us to see the motivations of radical groups in a new light...Teitelbaum's exceptional, but well-argued approach to fieldwork is challenging and provocative, and is poised to spark discussions among a wide array of scholars.

Roger Griffin, author of The Nature of Fascism Teitelbaum's vivid and highly readable documentation of the Scandinavian far right music scene encourages us to take racist subcultures, their international links, and the sheer creative vitality of their racism and xenophobia seriously as a strategy for perpetuating dreams of national-racial rebirth in a democratic age.

Philip V. Bohlman, Ludwig Rosenberger Distinguished Service Professor in Jewish History, The University of Chicago, and author of Jewish Music and Modernity Lions of the North is a very timely book, which captures the rise of Sweden's radical nationalism as the music of the right is transforming diverse political groups into a widespread anti-immigrant movement. Teitelbaum's penetrating, often disturbing, analysis of European musical politics today is critical reading.
