Drawing on the latest research into the ideological dynamics of fascism, Aristotle A. Kallis' fascinating new book is a major contribution to the understanding of the Holocaust, and the mass murder and genocide committed by Fascist regimes in the twentieth century.

Locating the Holocaust within an historical context, Kallis views the Nazi regime's crimes against humanity as a specific product of the inter-war European climate of culture and politics.

Refuting Daniel Goldhagen's theory that the Holocaust came about because of a unique form of 'eliminationist' 'anti-semitism' in the German identity, Kallis asks crucial questions about the complex and problematic relationship between fascism, anti-semitism, race and inter-war eliminationism.

For those studying the Holocaust, fascism or German history, Fascism and Genocide in Inter-War Europe will open eyes and minds to the theories of reasoning behind probably the most horrific event of the twentieth century.
