Leading historians on whether fascism is on the march again: Politics: The Guardian


An interesting selection of interviews with leading academic historians of all of them I think only Eric Hobsbawn has the key: “… The left is in trouble everywhere: Labour in the UK, the French socialists, the Italian democrats. The Spanish socialists, one of the few leftwing parties to gain in recent years, have also slipped. The SPD in Germany are not doing as badly as expected, but they are down to around 20%, and these losses are not compensated by the votes for the New Left party. We have seen the demoralisation of the French left and a degree of disintegration of the left in Germany. Social democrats will need a new vision as well as a new constituency.”

Interviews by Stephen Moss and John Crace in THE GUARDIAN: “Does the election of two BNP MEPs and the success of the far right elsewhere in Europe mean we are facing the threat of fascism? Or is this just a protest vote that will quickly fade? Leading historians give their verdicts..”more
