Overview

One of the most popular volumes in our European History Series, Bruce Pauley's inventive work continues to provide readers a unique interpretive comparison of the economics, propaganda, culture, and education and healthcare systems of all three forms of European totalitarianism, punctuated by vivid portraits of the dictators' youths, early careers, personal relationships, management styles, and cults of personality.

With so many totalitarian or near-totalitarian regimes remaining in the world today or struggling to emerge from the shadows of totalitarianism, it is clear that one cannot dismiss the totalitarian dictatorships discussed in this book as mere intellectual curiosities with no relevance to the present. This newest edition of Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini includes entirely new maps and a number of new photographs, considers the very latest scholarship—much of which has been published since 2002—and provides fascinating new details including the use of terror, Stalin’s lack of preparedness for war in 1941, the attempted reforms of Nikita Krushchev and Mikhail Gorbachev, and the changes that have taken place in the former dictatorships since the turn of the twenty-first century.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Crisply written and authoritative, Bruce Pauley’s updated edition of this classic text offers students an invaluable comparative account of the three great dictatorships of earlier twentieth century Europe. He takes his readers through the main historical debates while providing considered guidance to the wider literature."

-Professor Conan Fischer,
University of St Andrews, Scotland

"In this new edition of his classic text, Bruce Pauley puts the dominant figures of the horrific first half of twentieth-century Europe into a comparative perspective. Whoever wishes to understand totalitarianism and dictatorship must turn to Pauley’s book. One of the leading experts of European history, he provides his readers with magnificent portraits of the persons responsible for Europe’s darkest period." 


-Anton Pelinka, Professor of
Nationalism Studies and Political Science, Central European University,
