Summary:"Mussolini is remembered as one of the two most important Fascist
dictators of the twentieth century. He seized power in Italy in 1922
and ruled the country until overthrown in 1943. But his rule ended in
military disaster and personal humiliation, and he was executed by
anti-Fascist partisans in 1945." "On the 60th anniversary of
Mussolini's death, Martin Clark's portrayal of the Fascist dictator's
leadership bears a striking resemblance to the rule of contemporary
politicians, obsessed by media spin and short-term triumphs at home
and abroad. Clark argues that Mussolini pioneered a 'mediacracy' -
rule by journalists attempting to ensure that all social
institutions, and even the private sphere, conform to government
dictates. The Fascist stress on political correctness may have been
quite different in subject matter from today's, but was similar in
its attempts to make certain extremely common things unsayable and
even unthinkable."--BOOK JACKET.
