Omtale A Fascist Century
A Fascist Century is actually two books in one. First, it is a collection of 10 essays (nearly all printed here for the first time in English) by one of the world's foremost experts in the nature and evolution of fascism. These illuminate some of its most significant aspects, notably its attempted temporal and anthropological revolution, the dynamics of Nazism as the most virulent manifestation of 'palingenesis', and its postwar development away from interwar paradigms. Second, the preface, extensive introduction and concluding discussion between author and editor provide penetrating insights into the evolution of Griffin's thinking between his two seminal monographs, The Nature of Fascism (1991) and Modernism and Fascism (2007). Thanks also to the varying academic register and length of the pieces, this functions both as a multifaceted contribution to fascist studies and as a primer in the nature of contemporary historiographical debates.
