    An excerpt from Giuseppe Prezzolini’s book Fascism. This brief excerpt, translated by Kathleen Macmillan, describes the origins of Fascism and the historical events that led to its rise during the depression that swept the world after World War I. Prezzolini, . Benito Mussolini (left) and Adolf Hitler (right), the leaders of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany respectively, were both fascists. Fascism (/ ˈ f æ ʃ ɪ z əm /) is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century.

    Benito Mussolini () over the course of his lifetime went from Socialism - he was editor of Avanti, a socialist newspaper - to the leadership of a new political movement called "fascism" [after "fasces", the symbol of bound sticks used a totem of power in ancient Rome].. Mussolini came to power after the "March on Rome" in , and was appointed Prime Minister by King . MY RISE AND FALL is actually two books written twenty years apart. MY RISE is an autobiography written in l when Mussolini was extremely popular. The introduction by United States ambassador Richard Washurn Child is laudatory, in fact, a hagiography that represents the conservative opinion of that day/5(17).

    The rise of Fascism did little to alter friendly relations. Like the rest of the public, American diplomats were at first disturbed by the Blackshirts and the bands the March on Rome, however, Fascism’s image improved considerably.   Fascism is back in fashion. That, at least, is the message that former secretary of state Madeleine Albright wants to convey with her new book, “Fascism: A Warning.”.
