What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 16 in a series – “…a new world about which they disagreed bitterly.”

“At the end of the war, Europeans were torn between an old world that could not be revived and a new world about which they disagreed bitterly. As war economies were dismantled too quickly, wartime inflation spun out of control, making a mockery of the bourgeois virtues of thrift and savings. A population that had come to expect public solutions to economic problems was thrown into uncertainty.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
