A philosophical work published in 1908 by the French revolutionary syndicalist Georges Sorel. Sorel argues that the success of the proletariat in class struggle depended on the creation of a catastrophic and violent revolution achieved through a general strike. Many of the ideas within would later influence fascists and as well as socialists. This version was translated and edited by Jeremy Jennings for the 'Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought' series (pub. 1999).
Fascism and the American Scene was written as the introduction to the American edition of Daniel Guerin’s Fascism and Big Business, a study of fascism in Italy and Germany. In this study of American fascism, Dwight Macdonald tries to show that the European experience can teach this country a great deal about how fascism develops and how it can—and cannot—be fought.
