Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In light of the recent resurgence of fascism in Italy, recounts its first career there. Explains how the conditions after World War I allowed a small group to rise to power through violence, the use and violation of the democratic institutions, relations with the monarch and the Catholic Church, indoctrination and training, the cooperation with Germany and its decay into subservience, the pursuit of a war they seemed to be prepared for but were not, the ignoble end of Mussolini, and the eclipse of fascism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
Praise for the first edition:
"[an] impressive synthesis. Tightly written, it packs an enormous amount of information into 200-odd pages. [Morgan's] account of the links between domestic and foreign policy in Italian Fascism is exemplary."—Paul Preston, Times Higher Education Supplement
