Fascism is a political ideology which has been identified with totalitarianism, state terror, fanaticism, orchestrated violence, and blind obedience. Yet what is fascism? Why does it hold such strong appeal? Why does it provoke charismatic and dangerous movements? To what may these lead?

With extracts written by fascist thinkers and propagandists both inside and outside Europe, before and after the Second World War, this Reader offers a fascinating insight into the breadths and depths of this expanding political force.

  • Features writings by Benito Mussolini and Primo Levi, Joseph Goebbels and George Orwell
