Fascism is notoriously hard to define. Kevin Passmore unravels the paradoxes of one of the most important phenomena of the modern world - tracing its origins in the intellectual, political, and social crises of the late nineteenth century, fascist movements and regimes in Italy and Germany, and the fortunes of 'failed' fascist movements in Eastern Europe, Spain, and the Americas. He shows how important racist nationalism was to fascism, examines its appeal to women and men, workers and capitalists, and concludes with a look at the recent revival of the extreme right in Europe.
