Fascism: Comparison and Definition

2 Reviews
“An impressive review of reputed fascist movements, at once setting them apart from other authoritarian nationalist organizations and bringing them together within a qualified generic category.  Running throughout the volume, and valuable to readers at every level, is a careful critique of the major debates that divide scholars on this most unintelligible ‘ism’ of them all.  Payne precisely defines issues, cites the best literature in the major European languages, and offers with moderation and intelligence his own conclusions on the question.”—Gilbert Allardyce, American Historical Review

This is probably one of the coolest books I own; and I've just received it as a gift. Can't find a copy on Amazon or Ebay, so that makes me one lucky boy. Read full review
