The Radical Right in Western Europe: A Comparative Analysis is a book written by Herbert Kitschelt in collaboration with Anthony J. McGann. It is a political science study of far right political party experiences in seven countries of Western Europe.

In the book, Kitschelt, explores the rise of the new radical right parties in Western Europe. He claims that this phenomenon has taken place due to the shift in the political spectra in these countries. Kitschelt further distinguishes between three forms of new radical right parties: Neo-Fascists, which resemble the old Fascist parties and appeal to workers, NRR or new radical right such as the Vlaams Belang and the populist parties such as the radical parties of Italy.

It was published by University of Michigan Press in 1995; it was reprinted in paperback in 1997.
