Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes

Fascism, Nazism, Communism

Edited by Paul Corner

  • The first ever single-volume in-depth study of popular reactions to totalitarian rule, with contributions from a team of internationally acknowledged experts in their fields
  • Covers not only the Soviet Union, fascist Italy, and Nazi Germany, but also the post-Second World War communist regimes in East Germany and Poland
  • Moves beyond a focus on traditional themes of consent and coercion to construct a more nuanced picture of everyday life in the various regimes
  • Encourages comparisons between the different regimes, providing many new insights into the way these regimes functioned and the reasons for their decline
