Abstract

The past year has seen many brand the now president-elect Donald Trump as a fascist, citing his narcissism, threats against minorities, and appeals to authoritarianism. Whether Trump is a fascist or not, Jane Caplan writes that we may be able to understand him and what he represents better by looking to the history of fascism, a political ideology that was able to draw on fears about ‘other’ groups during similar periods of crisis in the past.
