Description
Information
Today the word 'fascist' is usually an insult aimed at those on the right, from neocons to big business. But what does it really mean? What if the true heirs to fascism were actually those who thought of themselves as being terribly nice and progressive – the liberals?

Jonah Goldberg's excoriating, opinion-dividing US bestseller explains why. Here he destroys long-held myths to reveal why the most insidious attempts to control out lives originate from the left, whether it's smoking bans or security cameras. Journeying through history and across culture, he uses surprising examples ranging from Woodrow Wilson's police state to the Clinton personality cult, the military chic of 60s' student radicals to Hollywood's totalitarian aesthetics, to show that it is modern progressivism – and not conservatism – that shares the same intellectual roots as fascism.

This angry, funny, smart and contentious book looks behind the friendly face of the well-meaning liberal, and turns out preconception inside out.
