Building Unity Against Fascism: Classic Marxist Writings


In 2007, French fascist Le Pen won almost four million votes. In 2009 the British National Party won almost a million votes while Germany’s fascist NPD won over 750,000. In 2010, fascist-led organisations like the Engish Defence League and Italy’s Future and Freedom party emerged. To help activists understand this twenty-first century wave of fascism, this book gathers together the most important analyses from the 20th century.
