Part of the Cambridge Perspectives in History series
An engaging range of period texts and theme books for AS and A Level history. This book presents new perspectives on the most controversial political concept in modern history.
After discussing the lack of an agreed definition for 'fascism', Richard Thurlow goes on to trace the origins of fascism and then provides an analysis of both the Fascist regime that took power in Italy under Mussolini and Hitler's Nazi Germany.
Fascist movements in other European countries are considered and an account of anti-fascism is given.
The book concludes with an overview of the manifestation of fascism in different forms since the end of the Second World War.
Fascism also contains a selection of primary sources.
