Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'A landmark in the development of fascist studies. With this collection, Roger Griffin, with the assistance of Matthew Feldman, concludes for now a series of ground-breaking books on the phenomenon of international fascism. Over the last fifteen years, Griffin has single-handedly transformed academic research into fascism in a number of ways, through re-conceptualizing and re-interpreting its political nature, place in current history, relation to modernity, and relevance for our understanding of social transformations in the contemporary world.' Andreas Umland, European History Quarterly
