Perhaps the most notable example of fascism was Hitler's Nazi Germany. Fascists aimed to control the media and other social institutions, and their views and agendas informed a wide range of daily life and popular culture. But while it flourished around the world in the decades before and after World War II, fascism continues to shape politics and government today. This volume explores the history of fascism around the world and across time, with special attention to how it has both been a political philosophy and has played a significant role in everyday people’s lives. Includes an overview of the history of fascism and includes a timeline of key events, plus alphabetical reference entries that discuss such topics as conditions for working people and for women, fascist institutions that regulated daily life, attitudes toward race, physical culture, the arts, and more. Includes primary source documents with first-hand accounts of fascist thought and practice, and a bibliography.
