Praise
"His critique leaves few residents of the 20th century unscathed, possibly provoking scholars to look down their noses and sniff about sloppy work....This to be be expected if Saul's thesis has any validity. It is also a pity, for there is much here that should not be dismissed so easily."
"...[T]here is little in this book that hasn't been said before. Saul displays both the strengths and weaknesses of the visionary/prophetic style. With their gaze fixed upon the horizon, visionaries may see deeper into the nature of things than other mortals. But they often aren't very good listeners. At ease with Plato, Terence, John of Salisbury, and David Hume, Saul pays little attention to anyone born after 1900."
From the Publisher
Annotation This book argues that while "Fascism" was militarily defeated in World War II, its social vision and "corporatist" doctrines were not--and are now more influential then ever.
