The Anatomy of Fascism

by Robert O. Paxton
£8.99   paperback  Penguin (2004)

The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton Fascism was the major political invention of the twentieth century and the source of much of its pain. How can we try to comprehend its allure and its horror? Is it a philosophy, a movement, an aesthetic experience? What makes states an nations become fascist? This book shows that in order to understand fascism we must look at it in action - at what it did, as much as what it said it was about. Paxton explores the falsehoods and common threads; the social and political base that allowed it to prosper; its leaders and internal struggles; how it manifested itself differently in each country - France, Britain, the low countries, Eastern Europe, even Latin America, as well as Italy and Germany; how fascists viewed the Holocaust; and, finally, whether fascism is still possible in today's world.
