- Ted Grant
For our October 2013 organizational-wide reading we republish here The Menace of Fascism by Ted Grant. Written after World War II, it analyzes the rise to power of Mussolini's black shirts and the Nazis in Germany. It draws on much of Trotsky's analysis on fascism to prepare the British working class to deal with the potential threat of Mosley's fascists. Although the postwar boom and the class balance of forces never gave the fascists in Britain a foothold, the document is chock full of brilliant insight to the mass movements of fascism in the 1930s.
