The volume offers compelling examples of recent scholarship addressing
various aspects of how European societies came to terms with, or chose to
overlook, their experiences under fascism. Included are studies of
significant regional diversity: France, Spain, Hungary, the Netherlands,
Denmark, Italy, Germany and Austria, as well as transnational themes.
Each essay advances its own particular thematic and methodological
approach, from everyday life experiences to political culture, educational
reform, family history and memory, diplomatic relations, the work of
international governmental organizations, and a case study involving an
economic institution. The shared perspective of the authors is the
analysis of the different and various ways in which the fascist past cast
a shadow over societies after fascism.
