Ideologies in the Age of Extremes : Liberalism, Conservatism, Communism, Fascism 1914-1991 Paperback / softback

Description

This is a history of political ideologies during the period from the First World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union, famously described by Eric Hobsbawm as 'The Age of Extremes'.*BR**BR*By introducing the key ideologies of the twentieth-century: liberalism, conservatism, communism and fascism, and considering them in in relation to each other, Willie Thompson shows how these philosophies often emerged from a common root or merged into a common future, stealing each other's clothes and reinventing themselves as the stark opposite of a competing ideology. *BR**BR*This sophisticated yet accessible analysis will be of great interest to students of 20th century history and political theory.
