To the Threshold of Power, 1922/33, Volume I: Origins and Dynamics of the Fascist and Nationalist Socialist Dictatorships - MacGregor Knox Well... I have finished this really stupendous book. All I can say is that I wait eagerly await for vol. II. Only caveat is that since this is a work of synthesis, it is not the best introduction to the topic, but requires that the reader know something about both countries. It is also, ultimately, an attack on Kershaw and the whole "structuralists"/"parenthesis" (Croce) thesis -- an attack on the view that Fascism/Nazism was just an "accident in the works" (Fr. Stern).... a mere "Betriebunsfall in der Geschichte" (Knox, 389 n.482). Just superb!
