Fascism : a history by Roger Eatwell( Book )

50 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The epic battle between communism and liberal democracy ended with breathtaking ease, and the first few euphoric years of democracy's triumph seemed to hold out the promise of a world at last entering a political consensus around the rights and values of an individualistic society. But the closing years of the twentieth century have proved the resilience and extent of the century's third great political force: fascism. The success of fascist parties in European elections, the appearance of fascist-inspired groups in the United States, and the recurrence of fascistlike political behavior in the numerous nationalist-inspired wars now consuming the former communistic bloc have provoked a reevaluation of the political movement once thought utterly defeated and discredited. In fact, fascism has never received the serious attention and sustained scrutiny that has been trained on both communism and liberalism. Only a detailed, objective, and dispassionate approach to the question of what fascism is, and how and why it has been both a success in some countries and a failure in others, will begin to provide useful and constructive answers
Contemporary political ideologies by Roger Eatwell( Book )

40 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening chapter of this study argues the case for understanding political ideologies as bodies of thought relating to issues such as human nature (are we inherently good or evil?) and socio-economic organization (does the state enslave or protect us?). Ten core chapters follow, defining the "isms" which have shaped the modern world. They explore such questions as: has socialism suffered from brain death, or is a new "Third Way" (between communism and capitalism) emergin?; is nationalism essentially a dangerous mythology, or can it take intellectually defensible forms?; should we - as radical ecologists proclaim - think globally and act locally?; is Islamic Fundamentalism a fanatical and menacing creed, or has it been misunderstood in the West?

Abstract:
National populism : the revolt against liberal democracy by Roger Eatwell( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Across much of the West, especially in Europe and the US, national populism is now a serious force. Our argument in this book is that to really make sense of this movement we need to take a step back and look at the deep, long-term trends that have been reshaping our societies over decades, if not longer."--Preface, P. viiI
Western democracies and the extreme right challenge by Cas Mudde( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Should democratic societies ignore extreme right parties or treat them as 'normal' political parties? Is the solution to the extreme right challenge to be found in new laws banning 'hate speeches' or individual parties? To what extent must we search beyond political and legal answers and focus on educational programmes and civil society responses? For long periods western democracy, especially its European form, seemed in danger of eclipse by a series of radical forces, most notably communist and fascist. Yet by the turn of the 1990s, western democracy appeared destined to become the universal governmental norm. However, as we move into the new millennium there are growing signs that extremism is far from dead. In recent years, the extreme right has gathered notable support in many Western countries, such as Austria, France and Italy. Racist violence, initially aimed at 'immigrants', is on the rise, and in the US, and increasingly in Europe, the state itself has become a major target. This book considers the varying trajectories of the 'extreme right' and 'populist' parties and focuses on the problems of responses to these trends, an issue which has hitherto been neglected in acade

Sono alcune delle domande alle quali cerca di rispondere il presente volume, che comprende una serie di contributi scritti per l'occasione da alcuni dei più famosi studiosi internazionali del fenomeno"--Page 3 of cover
Charisma and Fascism by António Costa Pinto( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fascism remains a topic that fascinates both academic and general audiences. This is the first book to look systematically at the leaders of fascism and related movements in the inter-war era. It shows how fascist leaders came to personify their movements and why the Führeprinzip was applied in all fascist organizations. It also explains how fascist leadership was of a very particular kind: It was almost unlimited in political discipline and required complete subordination. The legitimacy was based on a very vague notion of 'the organic unity of the state and the people', gi

Routledge studies in extremism and democracy( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new series encompasses academic studies within the broad fields of 'extremism' and 'democracy'. These topics have traditionally been considered largely in isolation by academics. A key focus of the series, therefore, is the (inter-) relation between extremism and democracy. Works will seek to answer questions such as to what extent extremist groups pose a major threat to democratic parties, or how can democracy respond to extremism without undermining its own democratic credentials?"--Description from publisher Web Site (routledge.com, viewed August 22, 2018)
