Scholarship of Fascism

From Metapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Scholarship of Fascism refers to the presentation in academia of fascism, the political movement which Italy was ruled by under Benito Mussolini. The vast majority of the so-called scholarship after World War II and just before it, is plagued by politically bias, specifically presenting a Marxist-Leninist view or is curtailed by the intellectual cowardice of authors who are desperate to show how "anti-fascist" they are rather than write a serious study of the subject. Much of the more serious work comes from outside the Anglosphere: especially Renzo De Felice and Ernst Nolte. Following that some serious work has been done by Zeev Sternhell,Template:J A. James Gregor and Stanley G. Payne. There is less stigma attached to writing objectively about Italian fascism than German National Socialism at present.
