"The Fascist Experience of Italy" examines the development of Italian fascism from the emergence of the united Italian state and the political, social and economic status of Italy in the nineteenth century to the post-war aftermath of fascism.
John Pollard provides an analysis of printed and broadcast propaganda, new documentary material and thematic coverage of major topics such as the transformation of Italian agrarian and urban society and the actions of the Papacy. He compares the rise of the Fascist movement against the background of the First World and the ensuing crisis of the Italian democratic system, reassessing the status of the fascist movement as a coalition rather than a monolith and detailing the images of energy and violence which were crucial to the success of fascism, both within Italy and internationally.
