Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Fenner and Weitz have put together an exciting collection of essays on Fascism and Neofascism. The contributions cover the entire spectrum of right-wing European experience in the twentieth century and recast the issue of Fascism with thought-provoking insights. They insist on the distinctive historical contexts of the interwar past and the present, but also highlight the common traits of radical nationalism. They bring out impressively the inventive and aggressive adaptation of old symbols and myths to new circumstances."--Michael Geyer, University of Chicago
