Censorship and Common Sense in Fascist Italy, 1922-43 is the first comprehensive account of the diversity and complexity of censorship practices in Italy under the Fascist dictatorship. By presenting archival material from the political police; the Italian military; the Prime Minister's press office, and its subsequent incarnation, the Ministry for Popular Culture, it shows how practices of censorship were used to effect regime change, to measure and to shape public opinion, behavior and attitudes in the twenty years of Mussolini's dictatorship.

Italian Fascists and Britain's Italians in the 1930s
Author: Claudia Baldoli
Publisher: Berg Pub Limited
How did Italians living in Britain respond to Mussolini's fascism? What links did ex-pat fascists forge with the British Right? To what extent did Italophilia exist in Britain during the Mussolini years? Exporting Fascism addresses these questions, which have long been ignored by historians. While there is much material available about Nazi sympathizers in the United Kingdom, there is comparatively very little about Italophile fascist sympathizers. The author uncovers the policy of Mussolini's government to transform Italian communities abroad into 'little Fascist Italies'. Ambassador Dino Grandi had great success in the fascistization campaign of Italian emigrants through such means as Italian community newspapers and fascist summer camps and schools. The author also examines the links forged between Italian fascism and the British Right. Specifically, she uncovers the Italophilia that dominated the British Union of Fascists (BUF) in the first half of the 1930s, later to be replaced with an admiration for National Socialism. She also examines the BUF's activities within Italy, which have thus far remained almost entirely unknown. Exporting Fascism sheds new light on a neglected aspect of the international fascist movement at the dawn of the Second World War.
Filling a gap in the English-language historiography of fascism, this book demonstrates that the Czech fascist movement, from its inception in 1922 until its suppression by the Nazis in 1942, was a movement with no deep roots in Czech political culture.
Emilio Gentile decodes Italy culturally, going beyond political and social dimensions that explain Italy's Fascist past in terms of class, or the cynicism of its leaders, or modernizing and expansionist ambitions.
