9780745327129: Ideologies in the Age of Extremes: Liberalism, Conservatism, Communism, Fascism 1914-1991

This is a history of political ideologies during the period famously described by Eric Hobsbawn as ‘The Age of Extremes’ - from the First World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ideologies in the Age of Extremes introduces the key ideologies of the age; liberalism, conservatism, communism and fascism. Willie Thompson identifies the political influence of mass movements as a key feature. He uses a powerful approach that considers the different ideologies in relation to each other. This allows him to shows that they often emerged from a common root or merged into a common future, stealing each other’s clothes and reinventing themselves as the stark opposite of a competing ideology.

This sophisticated yet accessible analysis will be of great interest to students of 20th century history and political theory.

Review:

Wide-ranging, well-informed and measured in its judgements, Willie Thompson's new book provides a first-rate introduction to movements and ideas in the so-called 'age of ideologies'. -- Professor Kevin Morgan, School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester Aptly characterises the deadly contest over which ideology shall prevail, ending with Fascism's destruction in war, communism's dissolution from within, and liberalism/conservatism's emergence intact. -- CHOICE
