Fascism remains one of the most misunderstood and intriguing curiosities of modern history. At the height of its popularity and influence in the period between the World Wars, virtually every European country had one or more groups that were considered fascist or thought of themselves as such: in Germany and Italy, of course, but also in France, Spain, Hungary, Romania, and elsewhere. This course, structured as lecture/discussion, offers students the opportunity to explore the ideals, experiences, aspirations and political realities of this simultaneously threatening and fascinating historical problem.
