The second part of this exercise will entertain Fascism in thirteen different countries, comparing them to each other and to Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany in the 1920’s through the 1940’s; Hungary and Romania in the 1930’s and later, Austria, Spain, Portugal and Greece; in the 1940’s, Norway, Croatia, and France. Fascist movements grew in England, South Africa and the USA in the 1930’s and 1940’s; and in Argentina under Peron during 1946-1955 and again from 1973-74. An overview of Neo-Fascism in six European countries (Italy, Germany, Austria, France and the Balkans and Greece) will bring the discussion to the XXI Century. Each session begins and ends with a listing of critical concepts. A narrative syllabus will be available electronically. Lectures and discussions will be illustrated with PowerPoint slides.
