Summary
Analyzes fascism and fascist antisemitism on the basis of Marxist, psychoanalytical, political, and aesthetic theories, especially those of Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin. Surveys the development of fascist ideology in the writings of a group of Paris intellectuals, including Drieu La Rochelle, Celine, Rebatet, Brasillach, and Bardeche. Refers to the place of the media in spreading fascist ideas - the press, the radio, and cartoons. Analyzes the "Histoire du cinema, " published by Brasillach and Bardeche in 1935 and the antisemitic edition of 1943. Ch. 7 presents a 1982 interview with Maurice Bardeche who was imprisoned after the war for describing the evidence at the Nuremberg Trials as an American fabrication and continues to support antisemitism and Holocaust denial.
