What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 37 in a series – “…too substantial for national politicians to ignore.”

“The de facto power of Fascism in rural northeastern Italy—especially Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany—had become by 1921 too substantial for national politicians to ignore.

Nevertheless, it showed that Mussolini had become a vital part of the Italian antisocialist coalition on a national level. It was the first step in that advance toward national power that was now Mussolini’s one guiding principle.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
