The anatomy of fascism by Robert O Paxton( Book )

65 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 10 languages and held by 2,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is fascism? Many authors have proposed succinct but abstract definitions. Robert O. Paxton prefers to start with concrete historical experience. He focuses more on what fascists did than on what they said. Their first uniformed bands beat up "enemies of the nation," such as communists and foreign immigrants, during the tense days after 1918 when the liberal democracies of Europe were struggling with the aftershocks of World War I. Fascist parties could not approach power, however, without the complicity of conservatives willing to sacrifice the rule of law for security." "Paxton makes clear the sequence of steps by which fascists and conservatives together formed regimes in Italy and Germany, and why fascists remained out of power elsewhere." "This book, based on a lifetime of research, will have a lasting impact on our understanding of twentieth-century history."--Jacket
Vichy France: old guard and new order, 1940-1944 by Robert O Paxton( Book )

49 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 2,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the truth of Vichy; that in the interests of stability, national feeling favored collaboration with the German-controlled regime. The author concludes that a coalition of the losers and victims of the Third French Republic seized the opportunity offered by defeat in 1940 to try to impose their vision of France on a population that was, at least at first, willing if not enthusiastic partners in a "national revolution."

Vichy France and the Jews by Michael Robert Marrus( Book )

36 editions published between 1981 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comparing German documents with newly available French sources, [the authors] conclusively demonstrate that, contrary to postwar testimony, Vichy unleashed a wave of antisemitic laws independent of German pressure. On coming to power in 1940, Vichy policy began by banning Jews from positions of public influence and from the military, then moved on to the confiscation of property and internment, and ended by cooperating in the deportation from France, and the death in German camps, of over 75,000 Jews."--Jacket

The anatomy of fascism by Robert O Paxton( )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is fascism? By focusing on the concrete: what the fascists did rather than what they said, the esteemed historian Robert O. Paxton answers this question for the first time. From the first violent uniformed bands beating up "enemies of the state," through Mussolini's rise to power, to Germany's fascist radicalization in World War II, Paxton shows clearly why fascists came to power in some countries and not others, and he explores whether fascism could exist outside the early-twentieth-century European setting in which it emerged.The Anatomy of Fascism will have a lasting impact on our understanding of modern European history, just as Paxton's classic Vichy France redefined our vision of World War II. Based on a lifetime of research, this compelling and important book transforms our knowledge of fascism--"the major political innovation of the twentieth century, and the source of much of its pain."
