Fascism and Dictatorship : Third International and the Problems of Fascism, Paperback / softback Book

Fascism and Dictatorship : Third International and the Problems of Fascism Paperback / softback

Description

Poulantzas's book is the first major Marxist study of German and Italian fascism to appear since the Second World War.

It carefully distinguishes between fascism as a mass movement before the seizure of power and fascism as an entrenched machinery of dictatorship.

It compares the distinct class components of the counter-revolutionary blocs mobilzed by fascism in Germany and Italy; analyses the changing relations between the petty bourgeoisie and big capital in the evolution of fascism; discusses the structures of the fascist state itself, as an emergency regime for the defense of capital; and provides a sustained and documented criticism of official Comintern attitudes and policies towards fascism in the fateful years after the Versailles settlement.

Fascism and Dictatorship represents a challenging synthesis of factual evidence and conceptual analysis that has been rare in Marxist political theory to date.
