This book presents new perspectives on the most controversial political concept in modern history. After discussing the lack of an agreed definition for 'fascism', Richard Thurlow goes on to trace the origins of fascism and then provides an analysis of both the Fascist regime that took power in Italy under Mussolini and Hitler's Nazi Germany. Fascist movements in other European countries are considered and an account of anti-fascism is given. The book concludes with an overview of the manifestation of fascism in different forms since the end of the Second World War. Fascism also contains a selection of primary sources.
The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before. they provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
All of the AS titles have been endorsed by OCR for use with their AS specification for history, and several of the titles will also be appropriate for Edexcel and AQA study units.
Many of the books include a seperate document section, where students can study and evaluate a range of source material.
Shorter themed books explore particular topics in greater depth. The topics examined can be linked with the period covering foundation texts, providing students and teachers with flexibillity in structuring A Level courses.
