About this book

This volume examines the varieties of anti-fascism in inter-war Britain. Ordinarily anti-fascism is defined in terms of anti-fascist activism. By extending the scope of the concept, this book breaks new ground. Chapters examine political parties, the state, the media, women, the churches, and intellectuals.

Reviews

'...elegant, erudite and important collection of essays...This wholly excellent and stylishly written volume deserves to be read very widely; it will appeal especially to modern historians, to politics students and their tutors, to politicians and activists and indeed to anyone who would attempt to understand the complexities of mid-twentieth-century politics and the devastating consequences of political failure.' -Derek Hawes, University of Bristol, Journal of Contemporary European Studies
