Roger Griffin, Fascistologist : A Preface by Stanley G. Payne. In the 17 years since The Nature of Fascism was published in 1991, Roger Griffin has moved to the very forefront of contemporary ‘fascistologists’. His achievements have rivalled those of Ernst Nolte’s original decade of specialisation in the history of fascism, and at the present time he stands unequalled among his currently active peers. His Oxford reader Fascism (1995) gave us the best single collection of fascist texts available in a single volume in any language, while the subsequent International Fascism (1998) provided the most sophisticated and up-to-date collection of studies and arguments on the interpretation of fascism. Subsequently the monumental five-volume Fascism: Critical Concepts in Political Science (2004), co-edited with Matthew Feldman, simply lapped the field, in its sweeping and inclusive presentation of the widest possible range of studies and interpretations from the 1920s to the present. More recently his magnum opus, Modernism and Fascism: The Sense of a Beginning under Mussolini and Hitler (2007), promises to be the most important book to appear on the history of fascism in a decade or more, accomplishing a sort of ‘paradigm shift’ in Fascist Studies which fully integrates fascism not just within cultural and political modernity, but within modernism itself. In short, Roger Griffin has given us a commitment otherwise shown only by A. James Gregor at the University of California-Berkeley: a scholar in his prime who has devoted many years unremittingly to the study and analysis of fascism, both in its classic historic manifestations and in its sequelae, as well. Some of Griffin’s best work has appeared in his scattered shorter pieces, so that the publication of the present volume constitutes another important contribution for scholars and students. These articles range widely from considering the temporal dimension of fascism’s revolutionary assault on the status quo, to the analysis of Nazism, the exploration of the post-war evolution fascism (a topic traditionally neglected by historians of interwar Europe), and the theory of fascism as a twentieth-century phenomenon and a fully fledged revolutionary ideology in its own right. None of them have been printed in Anglophone academic publications till now, and several have only been available in translation (Chapters 3, 5, and 6), so keen collectors of Griffinalia are in for a treat. ...
