              Fascism

              The word fascism is used so frequently in journalism and social media that it sometimes appears to have become a catch-all term of abuse, applicable to anyone on the political Right, from Hitler to Donald Trump, and from Putin to Thatcher. While some argue that it lacks any disti...nctive conceptual meaning at all, others have supplied highly specific and elaborate definitions of its essential features. It is therefore a concept that presents unique challenges for any student of political theory or history. In this accessible book, Roger Griffin, one of the world s leading authorities on fascism, brings welcome clarity to this controversial and difficult ideology. Examining its origins and development as a political concept, from its historical beginnings in 1920s Italy right up until the current day, Griffin guides students through the confusing maze of literature and debates surrounding the nature, definition and meaning of fascism. Elucidating with skill and precision its essential dynamic as a utopian ideology of national/racial rebirth, Griffin goes on to examine its post-Second World War mutations, as well as its relevance to achieving a nuanced understanding of contemporary right-wing political phenomena, ranging from Trump and Le Pen to Golden Dawn and Anders Breivik. This concise and engaging volume will be of great interest to all students of political theory, the history of political thought, and modern history, bringing them up to speed with one of the most multi-layered, adaptable, and destructive concepts of modern times.

              The Nature of Fascism

              The Nature of Fascism (Hardback)

              The Nature of Fascism draws on the history of ideas as well as on political, social and psychological theory to produce a synthesis of ideas and approaches that will be invaluable for students. Roger Griffin locates the driving force of fascism in a distinctive form of utopian my...th, that of the regenerated national community, destined to rise up from the ashes of a decadent society. He lays bare the structural affinity that relates fascism not only to Nazism, but to the many failed fascist movements that surfaced in inter-war Europe and elsewhere, and traces the unabated proliferation of virulent (but thus far successfully marginalized) fascist activism since 1945.
