He has studied organized racist and ultraconservative movements in Europe, North America, and South America for over fifteen years as an ethnographer, and is the author of two books: Lions of the North: Sounds of the New Nordic Radical Nationalism (Oxford, 2017) and the international bestseller War for Eternity: The Return of Traditionalism and the Rise of the Populist Right (Penguin, 2020).
