Mussolini and the rise of fascism by Donald Sassoon( Book )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 218 libraries worldwide
"On the morning of 30 October 1922, the Italian Fascist party leader Benito Mussolini arrived in Rome - not on horseback as he may originally have fantasised, but on the overnight wagon-lit from Milan - to be appointed as Prime Minister by King Victor Emmanuel III. While the future Duce had been meditating in his sleeping compartment, tens of thousands of his black-shirted supporters had been converging on the capital, some by car, some by train, others walking. This was the so-called 'March on Rome', an episode that would assume mythical status as, over the following five years, a liberal democracy was brutally transformed into a fascist dictatorship." "Donald Sassoon focuses on the crises which led to Mussolini's rise, and examines the longer-term factors behind it. In doing so he sheds new light upon events that would soon cast Italy, and the whole of Europe, into a new, and ultimately tragic, era."--BOOK JACKET
