Tom Wolfe on Liberal Fascism



Text  



Since the buzz is starting, I thought Corner readers might be interested in what Tom Wolfe had to say about the book:

“In the greatest hoax of modern history, Russia’s ruling “socialist workers party,” the Communists, established themselves as the polar opposites of their two socialist clones, the National Socialist German Workers Party (quicknamed “the Nazis”) and Italy’s Marxist-inspired Fascisti, by branding both as “the fascists.” Jonah Goldberg is the first historian to detail the havoc this spin of all spins has played upon Western thought for the past 75 years, very much including the present moment.  Love it or loathe it, “Liberal Fascism” is a book of intellectual history you won’t be able to put down—in either sense of the term.”
–Tom Wolfe, author of Bonfire of the Vanities and I Am Charlotte Simmons
