The anatomy of fascism - Robert O. Paxton

The anatomy of fascism - Robert O. Paxton

What is fascism? Many authors have proposed definitions, but most fail to move beyond the abstract

The esteemed historian Robert O. Paxton answers this question for the first time by focusing on the concrete: what the fascists did, rather than what they said. From the first violent uniformed bands beating up “enemies of the state,” through Mussolini’s rise to power, to Germany’s fascist radicalization in World War II, Paxton shows clearly why fascists came to power in some countries and not others, and explores whether fascism could exist outside the early-twentieth-century European setting in which it emerged.

Hey Chilli, I've seen you recommend a certain book on fascism a few times before - is this the one?
