Good episode? Give it some love!
Our resident expert Paul Jackson discusses the world of fascism with Mark in this episode. What is fascism? What is fascist studies? How might we research political movements like fascism that are often part of political subcultures rather than part of the mainstream. These and other questions form part of this discussion. We also analyse Donald Trump's politics - whilst Trump exhibits some of the ideologies and behaviour we would associate with fascists he lacks some of the key traits, particularly a revolutionary agenda to overturn the existing political system. Only history will be the judge of that of course. Paul also discusses his work with the Searchlight Archive at the University of Northampton, a internationally renowned collection of materials relating to the far right, as well as his forthcoming book - Pride in Prejudice: An Introduction to Britain's Extreme Right, which is forthcoming with Manchester University Press.
