Ideologies in the Age of Extremes : Liberalism, Conservatism, Communism, Fascism 1914-1991 Hardback

Description

This is a history of political ideologies during the period famously described by Eric Hobsbawn as 'The Age of Extremes' - from the First World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ideologies in the Age of Extremes introduces the key ideologies of the age; liberalism, conservatism, communism and fascism.

Willie Thompson identifies the political influence of mass movements as a key feature.

He uses a powerful approach that considers the different ideologies in relation to each other.

This allows him to shows that they 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.

This sophisticated yet accessible analysis will be of great interest to students of 20th century history and political theory.
