Concerns over the rise of fascism have been preoccupied with the Trump presidency and the Brexit vote in the UK, yet, globally, we are witnessing a turn towards anti-democratic and illiberal forces. From the tragic denouement of the Egyptian Revolution to the consolidation of the so-called Gujarat Model in India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the consolidation of the power of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to the recent election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, fascist ideology, aesthetics and fascist personalities appear across the globe. Spectres of Fascism makes a significant contribution to the unfolding discussion on whether what we are witnessing today is best understood as a return to classic twentieth-century 'fascism,' or some species of what has been called 'post-fascism.' Applying a uniquely global perspective, it combines analyses of historical contexts, theoretical approaches and contemporary geopolitics. 'Drawing on a variety of disciplines and theoretical foundations, this volume offers a profound and multifaceted account of political formations marked by perplexing and paradoxical sets of motives, commitments and aims' -- Ato Sekyi-Otu, author of author of 'Left Universalism, Africacentric Essays' 'This timely book provides profound insights into the rise of fascism that is currently taking hold, once again, in our world. Anyone seeking a deeper understanding of fascist populist rhetoric will find in this intelligent work a satisfying richness of thought that gives us hope in these times of darkness' -- David Morgan, Psychoanalyst 'Like a specter, fascism is protean in form yet more than a return of the past. Spanning from history to critical theory, from aesthetics to politics, and approaching fascism on a global scale, this book argues for a mindful commitment to the struggles of the present' -- Enzo Traverso, author of 'The New Faces of Fascism: Populism and the Far Right' 'Spectres of Fascism illuminates the terrifying resurgence of right-wing populist politics around the world, examining a variety of case studies from different critical theoretical perspectives. Essential reading for anyone interested in the uncanny return of fascistic tendencies within contemporary capitalist democracies' -- John Abromeit, author of 'Max Horkheimer and the Foundations of the Frankfurt School'
