The first integrated, comparative treatment of Nazism and Fascism, Alexander De Grand's study of fascism in Germany and Italy gives students a new and illuminating framework from which to approach both phenomena.

Well-known for his excellent general text on Italian facism, De Grand presents good coverage of domestic policy on issues such as women, youth and business and Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany:

* reconsiders the crisis of liberal democracy in Germany and Italy
* takes on recent revisionist debates without accepting their premises or conclusions
* covers four main themes: (i) the middle-class crisis in politics, (ii) the rise of the fascist state, (iii) the ideology of nation and (iv) the ideology of race.

De Grand's interdisciplinary approach puts economics and social considerations in the political framework and provides scholars and students of history, politics, and also sociology with an absolutely invaluable examination of these major movements.
