Editorial Reviews

"If anyone had doubts about the impossibility of defining fascism, Aristotle Kallis''s massive and comprehensive anthology reveals the Sisyphean nature of the task. He provided the best and most comprehensive presentation of fascism in all its complexities. That is no small achievement."
-Alaxander De Grand, North Carolina State University, "Journal of Modern Italian Studies, 2004
