Overview


“An impressive review of reputed fascist movements, at once setting them apart from other authoritarian nationalist organizations and bringing them together within a qualified generic category.  Running throughout the volume, and valuable to readers at every level, is a careful critique of the major debates that divide scholars on this most unintelligible ‘ism’ of them all.  Payne precisely defines issues, cites the best literature in the major European languages, and offers with moderation and intelligence his own conclusions on the question.”—Gilbert Allardyce, American Historical Review

    Best work on defining Fascism I have ever read

    This book is an objective and well researched attempt at defining what Fascism means. Many other works are just polemics, and more opinion based than research based. I found it to be a balanced and thorough examination, which covered multiple interpretations of the meaning of Fascism from different political points of view. The author also looked outside of Mussolini's Italy and Hitler's Germany for other historical examples of Fascism, highlighting differences between merely nationalist authoritarians and actual Fascist movements. I highly recommend this book, it is an essential work in this field.
