Beschreibung

This book illuminates a vital facet of right-wing thought in the first decades of the twentieth century, which had a powerful hold on Europe's intellectual elite. Prominent literary figures, such as Alfred Orange, Ezra Pound, Hilaire Belloc and the Chestertons, led a revolt against liberal parliamentary democracy in Britain. This group--a self-identifying Nietzschean elite eager to lead the masses--despised parliaments as representing and embodying a "nation." Tom Villis examines the literary works, private papers, correspondence and memoirs of the leaders of this anti-Semitic, anti-modern, anti-women's rights movement that formed the intellectual underpinning of European fascism.
