    The European dictatorships provides a well-balanced account of the three main European dictatorships in the period 1919-45. Allan Todd explores Stalinism, Fascism and Nazism in detail, dealing with the establishment and maintenance of power, the nature of party and state rule, the distribution of power, the purpose and impact of social and economic policies, opposition, and the significance of foreign policy and war. Comparisons and contrasts between the dictatorships are also highlighted. Using a wide range of primary sources, this book deals with the main historical and interpretive issues of this subject in an accessible way.
