The Oxford Handbook of Fascism Summary

The Oxford Handbook of Fascism by R.J.B. Bosworth (University of Western Australia and University of Reading)

The essays in this Handbook, written by an international team of distinguished scholars, combine to explore the way in which fascism is understood by contemporary scholarship, as well as pointing to areas of continuing dispute and discussion. From a focus on Italy as, chronologically at least, the 'first Fascist nation', the contributors cover a wide range of countries, from Nazi Germany and the comparison with Soviet Communism to fascism in Yugoslavia and its successor states. The book also examines the roots of fascism before 1914 and its survival, whether in practice or in memory, after 1945. The analysis looks at both fascist ideas and practice, and at the often uneasy relationship between the two. The book is not designed to provide any final answers to the fascist problem and no quick definition emerges from its pages. Readers will rather find there historical debate. On appropriate occasions, the authors disagree with each other and have not been forced into any artificial 'consensus', offering readers the chance to engage with the debates over a phenomenon that, more than any other single factor, led humankind into the catastrophe of the Second World War.

This valuable collection brings readers the latest research and thinking and will prove invaluable to students of the twentieth century. * Contemporary Review *
...offer[s] the reader access to many complex and fascinating episodes and aspects in fascism's history... * Roger Griffin, English Historical Review *
An expert, and up-to-date representation of the "state of the art" of research into fascism, this is a volume that serious scholars of Europe's "Age of Extremes" will want to have on their bookshelves. * Andrew G. Bonnell, Australian Journal of Politics and History *
Because of its breadth and depth, this lucid and in many ways excellent handbook will be one of the first ports of call for anyone interested in the history of fascism. * Christian Goeschel, H-Soz-u-Kult *
