Fascism was one of the defining experiences of the European 20th Century. Within it many of the economic, political, social and cultural contradictions that had been brewing in the unprecedented transformation that European society underwent in the 19th and early 20th century came to a head. Mussolini, the man who most fashioned Italian Fascism, dramatically expressed the unease and the hopes of his age.

To what extent can we compare Mussolini's Italy to Hitler's Germany or Stalin's Russia? What legacy has the experience of Fascism left behind in Italy and in Europe? These and many more important questions are explored in Finaldi's introduction to one of the most important movements of the European 20th Century.

Product Description:

To what extent can we compare Mussolini's Italy to Hitler's Germany or Stalin's Russia? What legacy has the experience of Fascism left behind in Italy and in Europe? This book explores such important questions in Finaldi's introduction to one of the most important movements of the European 20th Century.

From the Back Cover:

Mussolini and Italian Fascism

Giuseppe Finaldi

 

Mussolini and Italian Fascism plots the life of a man and a nation seeking to find a role in a continent wracked by poverty, resentment, conflict and war yet awash with contradictory hopes for earthly utopia and a better future. Tracing the rise and ultimately grisly fall of the Italian dictator, Finaldi explores:

 

·         The reasons why fascism developed such a strong following in Italy at this time

·         The First World War and its impact on Italy

·         The complex connection between Catholicism and Fascism

·         The causes and consequences of the war in Ethiopia

·         The twists and reversals that characterised the bond between Hitler and Mussolini

·         The gap between the regime’s military ethos and the country’s performance in the Second World War

 

 

With a rich collection of Documents, Who’s Who, Chronology, Glossary and a Guide to Further Reading, this study is a perfect way for students to get a grip on the experience of Italian Fascism and will, through its fresh reading of a crucial facet of Europe’s 20th century, also merit the attention of those already familiar with the subject.

 

Giuseppe Finaldi is a lecturer in History at the University of Western Australia. He has worked extensively on Italian social and cultural history in the 19th and 20th centuries.
