How did fascism emerge as a 20th century phenomenon?
In what way is fascism united inexorably to the ancient systems of hereditary power that have manipulated humanity for millenia and how did these institutions shape the contours of recent history, both in the orchestration of World War 2 and in the reconstitution of fascist ideologues during the dark decades of the Cold War?
How are these processes shaping today’s beleaguered world?
Perhaps most importantly, what insights do these historical lessons provide us in our current age to navigate through the storms threatening civilization once more?
These questions and more are answered in this first of two volumes by Cynthia Chung
