Not terrible as a brief history, although it is painfully evident that it was written by and illustrated by ‘unrepentant socialists’ as they describe themselves in the end note. The history is far too vague and consistently fails to dig down into the roots of Fascism. It also ends the book on the note that to confront Fascism is to end it, while spending the entire book saying that the failure of the Left to defend and represent the working and lower-middle class is what causes Fascism: to end by saying use Fascism against Fascism is a bit ‘rich’ and also directly ignores why it exists in the first place. The argument and conclusion do not follow.
