How to Spot a Fascist

by Umberto Eco - £3.50  Vintage Publishing (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781787302662 | ISBN 10: 1787302660

We are here to remember what happened and to declare solemnly that 'they' must never do it again. But who are 'they'?
 
How to Spot a Fascist is a selection of three thought-provoking essays on freedom and fascism, censorship and tolerance - including Eco's iconic essay 'Ur-Fascism', which lists the fourteen essential characteristics of fascism, and draws on his own personal experiences growing up in the shadow of Mussolini. Umberto Eco remains one of the greatest writers and cultural commentators of the last century.
 
In these pertinent pieces, he warns against prejudice and abuses of power and proves a wise and insightful guide for our times. If we strive to learn from our collective history and come together in challenging times, we can hope for a peaceful and tolerant future.
 
Freedom and liberation are never-ending tasks. Let this be our motto: 'Do not forget.'
