Book Overview

No single book is as relevant to the present moment.--Claudia Rankine, author of Citizen

One of the defining books of the decade.--Elizabeth Hinton, author of From the War on Poverty to the War on Crime

NEW YORK TIMES BOK REVIEW EDITORS' CHOICE - Fascist politics are running rampant in America today--and spreading around the world. A Yale philosopher identifies the ten pillars of fascist politics, and charts their horrifying rise and deep history.

As the child of refugees of World War I Europe and a renowned philosopher and scholar of propaganda, Jason Stanley has a deep understanding of how democratic societies can be vulnerable to fascism: Nations don't have to be fascist to suffer from fascist politics. In fact, fascism's roots have been present in the United States for more than a century. Alarmed by the pervasive rise of fascist tactics both at home and around the globe, Stanley focuses here on the structures that unite them, laying out and analyzing the ten pillars of fascist politics--the language and beliefs that separate people into an us and a them. He knits together reflections on history, philosophy, sociology, and critical race theory with stories from contemporary Hungary, Poland, India, Myanmar, and the United States, among other nations. He makes clear the immense danger of underestimating the cumulative power Read More chevron_right

Write Review
   Nothing new here for anyone paying attention.
Nothing here but a somewhat dated indictment of Trump. Very boring reading for anyone who reads the news. I agree with almost all of it, but I have no idea what it was. Waste of time to read.
   Great Book
Clear and well written. I felt enlightened on this political system after having read it!
   Very good dissection
Very good book dissecting the subtle indoctrination of fascist politics and how they are very alive in this current moment.
   The thesis of the day one précis for a good time.
In an hour, you have a great overall and a good job of understanding the other way of thinking about it, Bruno said. It's great to be back home, read Gillian.
   Amazing and eye opening
This book was so enlightening but at the same time scary as hell The entire thing is exciting and well tied together.
   Author has no idea of what fascism is
The author has no idea what fascism is actually. Fascism is very far left of the political spectrum. I'd suggest doing your own research on the fascist party under Hitler and you'd be more inclined to believe that it is actually the left who are promoting fascism. Save money on Kitchenaid's meals by using these coupons.
   What a shame
The first couple of chapters are good but later chapters contradict the us and them thesis by citing repression of race, gender and nationalist movements as fascist tools. The division of people into sub-groups is at the heart of the threat of the us and then mentality.
   Enjoying my book
Like the book, I'm partial to the story. Very historical, present, and fulfilling. Knowledge is power. Thank you for your interest in this book. The Beatles' music "was almost as good as the Beatles themselves."
Only 193 pages in length, Jason has done a masterful job of weaving together a wide variety of historical and genealogical material. For one, I learned a lot. Very, very informative indeed, to understanding the rise of latent fascism in this country, he said.
What is happening in The USA, Europe and Russia is laid bare in this book. A good resource for debating those inclined to be fascist or are fascist but are too coy to admit it.
