The past fifteen years have witnessed the renewed presence of fascism in European political and cultural life. In addition, there have been scandals surrounding the fascist pasts of numerous renowned intellectuals, including Martin Heidegger, Paul de Man, and Maurice Blanchot.
In Fascism’s Return, eleven leading American and European scholars examine the resurgence of fascism from many angles, providing an essential and timely view of this troubling moment in European political, cultural, and intellectual history. Intellectual and public scandals surrounding the fascist past—including the highly publicized Barbie and Touvier trials in France—are addressed. Other writers focus on controversial efforts to revise the historical representation of fascism in Germany and France. The reemergence of the “new” fascist movements and ideologies in various European nations is also examined. A final essay considers the controversial U. S. support during the 1980s of Central American dictatorships.
As editor Richard J. Golsan notes, the essays in this volume “illustrate a multitude of ways in which fascism continues to make its presence felt in western democratic societies, erupting with disturbing frequency as a ‘return of the repressed’ in judicial and artistic scandals as well as in historical, critical, and political debates.”

Richard J. Golsan is a professor of French at Texas A&M University. He is author of “Service inutile”: A Study of the Tragic in the Theatre of Henry de Montherlant and editor of Memory, the Holocaust, and French Justice: The Bousquet and Touvier Affairs.From Library Journal :
During the 1980s and 1990s, France, Austria, Italy, Germany, and Russia saw the rise of active ultranationalist and rightist parties?a trend that, with European ambivalence toward the former Yugoslavia, is said to indicate the rise of a new variety of fascism. These 11 fine essays examine contemporary fascism's legacy in political and social terms in Europe and the Americas since 1980. They cover far-right movements in Italy and France since the end of World War II, the German historians' debate over the war and the Holocaust for its effect on contemporary politics, the history of French fascism and the aftermath of the Vichy period, the trials of Paul Touvier and Klaus Barbie, the role of German right-wing intellectuals in contemporary culture, the debate over Heidegger's and de Man's fascist connections, and fascism in American support of military governments in Central America during the 1980s. These dense, highly technical essays assume considerable knowledge on the part of the reader but are provocative nonetheless. This work complements such studies as The Far Right in Europe (Longman, 1996. 2d ed.), Geoffrey Harris's The Dark Side of Europe: The Extreme Right Today (Edinburgh Univ., 1994), and Fascist Europe (Pluto, 1992). Highly recommended for all academic and larger public libraries.?Stephen L. Hupp, Univ. of Pittsburgh, Johnstown, PA
