From fascism to populism in history by Federico Finchelstein( Book )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fascism and populism are at the center of political discussions today. Although they are often conflated, they represent alternative global trajectories. This book represents a historian's inquiry into how and why fascism became linked with populism in history. Stressing the significant differences between populism as form of democracy and fascism as a form of dictatorship, From Fascism to Populism in History rethinks the conceptual and historical experiences of fascism and populism by assessing their elective ideological affinities and substantial political differences in history and theory"--Provided by publisher

The ideological origins of the dirty war : fascism, populism, and dictatorship in twentieth century Argentina by Federico Finchelstein( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Argentina is famous for its ties with fascism as well as its welcoming of Nazi war criminals after World War II. At mid-century, it was the home of Peronism. It was also the birthplace of the Dirty War and one of Latin America's most criminal dictatorships in the 1970s and early 1980s. How and why did all of these regimes emerge in a country that was "born liberal"? Why did these authoritarian traits first emerge in Argentina under the shadow of fascism? In this book, Federico Finchelstein tells the history of modern Argentina as seen from the perspective of political violence and ideology. He focuses on the theory and practice of the fascist idea in Argentine political culture throughout the twentieth century, analyzing the connections between fascist theory and the Holocaust, antisemitism, and the military junta's practices of torture and state violence, with its networks of concentration camps and extermination. The book demonstrates how the state's war against its citizens was rooted in fascist ideology, explaining the Argentine variant of fascism, formed by nacionalistas, and its links with European fascism and Catholicism. It particularly emphasizes the genocidal dimensions of the persecution of Argentine Jewish victims. The destruction of the rule of law and military state terror during the Dirty War, Finchelstein shows, was the product of many political and ideological reformulations and personifications of fascism. The Ideological Origins of the Dirty War provides a genealogy of state-sanctioned terror, revealing fascism as central to Argentina's political culture and its violent twentieth century"--
Dialogues on power and space by Carl Schmitt( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in the early stages of the Cold War by one of the most controversial political and legal thinkers of the twentieth century, Carl Schmitt s two short dialogues on power and space bring together several dimensions of his work in new ways. The dialogues renew Schmitt s engagement with the questions of political power and geo-politics that had been a persistent concern throughout his intellectual life. As a basis on which to think through the historical role of human agency in relation to power and its new geographies, the dialogues condense and rework key concepts in Schmitt s political theory during a transitional period between his Weimar and fascist years to the post-war writings. In this book, Schmitt develops a new dialectics of modern power and an original understanding of the global spatial transformations of the Cold War period. Equally important, the dialogues anticipate the debates on the new geo-political possibilities and threats related to cosmic spaces, overpowering technological advances, and the existential predicament of the human in an increasingly multipolar world."--

Ex captivitate salus : experiences, 1945-47 by Carl Schmitt( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Germany was defeated in 1945, both the Russians and the Americans undertook mass internments in the territories they occupied. The Americans called their approach automatic arrest. Carl Schmitt, although not belonging in the circles subject to automatic arrest, was held in one of these camps in the years 1945-46 and then, in March 1947, in the prison of the international tribunal in Nuremberg, as witness and possible defendant. A formal charge was never brought against him. Schmitt's way of coping throughout the years of isolation was to write this book. In [this book], [the author] considers a range of issues relating to history and political theory as well as recent events, including the Nazi defeat and the newly emerging Cold War. Schmitt often urged his readers to view the book as though it were a series of letters personally directed to each one of them. Hence there is a decidedly personal dimension to the text, as Schmitt expresses his thoughts on his own career trajectory with some pathos, while at the same time emphasising that this is not romantic or heroic prison literature. This reflective work sheds new light on Schmitt's thought and personal situation at the beginning of a period of exile from public life that only ended with his death in 1985"--

Transnational fascism. Argentina and Italy, 1919--1945 by Federico Finchelstein( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation represents an attempt to transcend the standard opposition between Latin America and Europe. I accomplish this by analyzing Argentine and Italian intellectual encounters on both sides of the Atlantic. These intellectual exchanges represent a central aspect of the intellectual origins of Peronism and more generally the genealogical origins of Argentine Authoritarianism
Authoritarianism and corporatism in Europe and Latin America : crossing borders( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What drove the horizontal spread of authoritarianism and corporatism between Europe and Latin America in the twentieth century? What processes of transnational diffusion were in motion and from where to where? In what type of 'critical junctures' were they adopted and why did corporatism largely transcend the cultural background of its origins? What was the role of Intellectual-politicians in the process? This book will tackle these issues by adopting a transnational and comparative research design encompassing a wide range of countries"--
