about

Modernism and Totalitarianism evaluates a broad range of post-1945 scholarship. Totalitarianism, as the common ideological trajectory of Nazism and Stalinism, is dissected as a synthesis of three modernist intellectual currents which determine its particular, inherited character.
RICHARD SHORTEN teaches political theory at the University of Birmingham, UK. His work focuses on the history of political ideas, with particular reference to twentieth-century Europe. He has published widely on the subject of totalitarianism.
