About the Authors
  • Can Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany be compared? This collaborative volume explores the parallels and contrasts between the two regimes. Its ten essays examine the rise of the Fascist and Nazi movements; the relation of the regimes to workers, women, and war; and how the regimes may be viewed in a long-term perspective. The essays take stock of recent research, advance fresh theories about the histories of Nazism and Fascism, and provide a basis for informed comparison of two regimes central to twentieth-century history.

    • Offers a fresh basis for comparing Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy - a truly comparative volume
    • Gives up-to-date account of history and historiography of the regimes
    • Includes clear, informed essays on major themes in the history of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy
