Book Description The Nature of Fascism draws on the history of ideas as well as on political, social and psychological theory to produce a synthesis of ideas and approaches that will be invaluable for students. Roger Griffin offers a radically new conceptual framework for the study of fascism by locating its driving force in a distinctive form of utopian myth, that of the regenerated national community destined to rise up from the ashes of a decadent society ("palingenetic ultra-nationalism").
His major work is "The Nature of Fascism" (), which established the first new theory of generic fascism for over a decade. It is a theory that continues to have a major influence on the 5/5(1). _The Nature of Fascism_ by Roger Griffin provides a unique contribution to the field of fascist studies. Griffin attempts to provide a definition for the essence of a series of movements and political regimes which were given rise to in the earlier part of this last century and which he believes constitute "fascism".Reviews: 7.

That point seems central to your next fascism book, Fascist Spectacle by sociologist Simonetta Falasca-Zamponi. Fascist Spectacle is a valuable book from a sociologist who is quite theoretical but also very, very attentive to how policies play out in daily life and to the connection between rhetoric and action.
The nature of 'fascism' has been hotly contested by scholars since the term was first coined by Mussolini in However, for the first time since Italian fascism appeared there is now a significant degree of consensus amongst scholars about how to approach the generic term, namely as a revolutionary form of ultra-nationalism. Clearly, a book on the ‘nature of fascism’ written on this basis will be an exercise in the applied history of ideas. As such it will pay the scantiest attention to the myriad events in which each fascist movement is enmeshed or the particular sociopolitical and economic. His book, Modernism and Fascism, locates the mainspring of the fascist drive for national rebirth in the modernistbid to achieve an alternative modernity, which is driven by a rejection of the decadence of 'actually existing modernity' under liberal democracyor tradition. Fascism definition is - a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.
