    1. What could have been an amazing book was absolutely ruined by a nearly complete lack of citations to back up the claims that were being made As a result I had to do outside research to learn about the things that were being discussed, and when I did I discovered that many of the claims being made were exaggerations, manipulations, or outright lies I gave up on this book in frustration about two thirds of the way through after discovering the author tried to pass off as happening before 2003 some [...]


    2. The book is detailed and densely argued, but equips the reader with a much deeper understanding of fascism, its forms, and tactics Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in comtemporary poltical and social movements that may give rise to fascism Negative reviews need to be regarded skeptically because they are likely to have been left by fascist sympathisers.


    3. Now this one I REALLY recommend Against the fascist creep 2017 is probably one of the most relevant books I have read in quite a while I am sure there are seminal studies on fascism, but this book is great because it provides a historical and ideological theoretical analysis of fascism while remaining accessible for those without a solid political theory background.The book analyses how fascism can share ideological space with parts of the left and other non fascist extreme right wing ideologie [...]


    4. I haven t read much on the politics of fascism and antifascism outside of WWII related history I never thought it was a relevant issue most of my life It was a fringe phenomenon of a tiny group of extremists If you notice what I have been reading since 2016 is a lot of books on this subject Apparently, it is on the march and putting all of us in danger This book provides an excellent primer on the prewar origins and the postwar rise from the graveyard of this dangerous and lethal movement It cov [...]


    5. I am so grateful to Alexander for writing this book The amount of research and exposure to the most vile ideas and practices requires a special amount of fortitude I especially recommend this book for political groups to engage collectively both to inform the group s analysis and to shape any and all liberation praxis as anti fascist I am currently reading the book with a group of fellow faculty, alumni, staff, and students from the school where I teach The group s members are spread across the [...]


    6. Decent overview of the fascist creep and various instantiations from world war II to the present The author does a good job on touching on lesser known aspects of fascist right including the mysticism and folk lore aspect The author could have done a better job of orienting the book for folks new to the subject There is some prerequisite knowledge necessary that the author takes for granted, but nonetheless is a good introduction to fascist movements past and current.


    7. decent read with a lot of information author goes into the book assuming the reader has a preliminary knowledge of fascism, which frankly I didn t so there was a lot of dog earing, highlighting and ing This is the kind of read that would appeal to your typical philosophy major, but will drive your english lit student to tears due to a serious lack of editing as far as social activism and political awareness go, i would definitely recommend reading this though over posting another punch nazi meme [...]


    8. A great history of fascism and its many, many horrifying and confusing faces Its quite a dense book in regards to the amount of names, groups and ideas in general but I thoroughly enjoyed it and seeing as it is a relatively small read 330 pages it was great in pointing me in the direction of further reading and study.



    9. The book is probably better than 3 stars for informed readers however, I came at it as an outsider and a non historian It is scholarly and well footnoted The index is useful It is dense and nuanced I don t have enough background to evaluate findings, but they seemed well argued Sometimes I wondered if there was too much guilt by association a closer second reading would answer that.Although I got lost in the detail and alphabet soup of abbreviations, I got the general drift There are variations [...]


    10. The book is the most comprehensive and intellectually rigorous study on the terrifying history of fascism, its infiltration into the movements of both the left and the right, and how it infected the body politic and gave rise to the Trump era that I ve read Highly recommend to anyone that s curious as to how we arrived at this precarious moment in our history.


    11. This is a really useful intellectual history of fascist thinkers and movements a and field guide to contemporary fascisms Reid Ross is particular attentive to how fascism attempts to enter and parasitically absorb left and anticapitalist antiauthoritarian movements, from syndicalism to deep ecology.


    12. A well documented history of fascism, including an assessment of fascism s unfortunate creep into popular discourse Not an easy read the brutal face of fascism is revealed and this is a scholarly book that covers a lot of ground, perhaps trying to cover too much ground at some points.


    13. A compelling and disturbing history of Fascist thought, and the creeping influence it has around the world again in the midst of neoliberal failure and leftist inability to respond Know thy enemy.
