Winner of the Political Book of the Year Award 2015 The UK Independence Party (UKIP) is the most significant new party in British politics for a generation. In recent years UKIP and their charismatic leader Nigel Farage have captivated British politics, media and voters. Yet both the party and the roots of its support remain poorly understood. Where has this political revolt come from? Who is supporting them, and why? How are UKIP attempting to win over voters? And how far can their insurgency against the main parties go? Drawing on a wealth of new data from surveys of UKIP voters to extensive interviews with party insiders in this book prominent political scientists Robert Ford and Matthew Goodwin put UKIP's revolt under the microscope and show how many conventional wisdoms about the party and the radical right are wrong. Along the way they provide unprecedented insight into this new revolt, and deliver some crucial messages for those with an interest in the state of British politics, the radical right in Europe and political behaviour more generally.

"This rigorous analysis of the rise of Ukip is the most important books on British politics for years. Revolt on the Right is written by two young political scientists, Robert Ford and Matthew Goodwin. It is based on rigorous analysis of survey evidence, as well as interviews with leading Ukip figures. It shows convincingly how the Ukip insurgency reflects deeper changes in British society, changes that the three major parties have barely glimpsed. Revolt on the Right is not only an outstanding work of political science. It is also one of the most important books on British politics to have appeared for many years" - Vernon Bogdanor, The Spectator 'An excellent new book by Robert Ford and Matthew Goodwin' - Nigel Farage, UKIP Leader Winner 'Political Book of the Year', 2015. One of The Guardian's Top Politics Books in 2014 - 'A sparky academic study of the rise of Ukip'. "Revolt on the Right is a rich and insightful dissection of Britain's first new major political force in a generation. Ford and Goodwin combine rigorous yet accessible statistical analysis of UKIP's supporters with unprecedented access to party activists and leaders. They paint a detailed portrait of the social forces driving UKIP's emergence and how the party itself has developed to mobilise a new mass electorate. This book is essential reading for anyone looking to understand this fascinating, and potentially disruptive, new force in British politics." Anthony Heath, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Oxford, and Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester. "Ford and Goodwin havent just talked to everyone who counts and crunched all the data thats out there. Theyve produced a really approachable book on a party which, by providing disoriented and disillusioned voters with the alternative theyve been looking for, may well make a big impact at the next election and beyond." Tim Bale, Professor of Politics, Queen Mary University of London, author of The Conservative Party: From Thatcher to Cameron "Revolt on the Right is not just a timely and fascinating book; it is also an important one: the first detailed study of one of the most significant developments in modern British politics the rise of UKIP, which not only taps into popular discontent with the European Union, but has emerged as Britains first major non-toxic party to the right of the Conservatives." Peter Kellner, President of YouGov. "An essential analysis of the phenomenon that is UKIP in the run up to the 2015 General Election. Vital for anyone studying modern British politics seriously." Ben Page, Chief Executive of Ipsos MORI. "As the first serious study of the biggest challenge to the political status quo in 30 years, Revolt on the Right will be hard to better. It is both a garish picture of what the British right looks like when it has had one beer too many, and a sympathetic and occasionally touching account of the frustrations of the white working class voters progressive culture and conservative economics have decided they can do without." Nick Cohen, The Observer. "A forensic insight into the explosive rise of Britain's radical right, packed full of compelling research and first-rate analysis. A must-read for all those interested in the state of modern Britain." Owen Jones, columnist for The Independent and author of CHAVS: The Demonization of the Working Class. "This is an outstanding contribution to understanding contemporary politics: a rigorous assessment of the attitudes and demographics of UKIP voters as well as a brilliant story of the people and feuds behind the disorderly rise of a popular movement." John Rentoul, Chief Politicial Commentator, The Independent on Sunday. "UKIP a quixotic project to transform UK politics or the catalyst for partisan realignment? Read Ford and Goodwins comprehen
