International Fascism 1920-1945

International Fascism 1920-1945 - Walter Mosse, George L. Mosse Robert J. Soucy's "The Nature of Fascism in France", pp. 27-55, is superb. Despite its narrow title, it is the best single brief introductory essay to the general topic of fascism that I have seen. (This is by far the best paper in this volume -- and the only one that most readers would find interesting.)

For those who can read French, I'd also call attention to the lead essay in Ph. Burrin's collected papers, titled "Les régimes fasciste et nazi", pp. 11-47:

The lead essay by George Mosse (pronounced Moss-ee) in The Fascist Revolution is also excellent: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3686095.The_Fascist_Revolution_Toward_a_General_Theory_of_Fascism
