Mussolini and the Eclipse of Italian Fascism: From Dictatorship to Populism

Mussolini and the Eclipse of Italian Fascism: From Dictatorship to Populism (Hardback)

£25.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

On the tenth anniversary of his rise to power in 1932, Mussolini seemed to many the "good dictator." He was the first totalitarian and the first fascist in modern Europe. But a year later Hitler's entrance onto the political stage signaled a German takeover of the fascist ideology.



In this definitive account, eminent historian R.J.B. Bosworth charts Mussolini's leadership in reaction to Hitler. Bosworth shows how Italy's decline in ideological pre-eminence, as well as in military and diplomatic power, led Mussolini to pursue a more populist approach: angry and bellicose words at home, violent aggression abroad, and a more extreme emphasis on charisma. In his embittered efforts to bolster an increasingly hollow and ruthless regime, it was Mussolini, rather than Hitler, who offered the model for all subsequent authoritarians.

R.J.B. Bosworth is Emeritus Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford. He is a leading authority on Mussolini and is the author of more than two dozen books on fascism and Italy's twentieth-century experience, including Claretta: Mussolini's Last Lover. He lives in Oxford, UK.
