Just before Christmas a new issue of the open access journal Fascism. Journal of Comparative Fascist Studies (volume 8, no. 2) was published. The special issue ‘Fascist and National Socialist Antiquities and Materialities from the Interwar Era to the Present’ presents articles about the use of classicism by the Fascist and National Socialists regimes and how it affects current society. For instance in Italy’s refugees policy and in the architecture in Berlin and Rome. Outside of the special issue we published an article about the neo-Nazi’s in the World Union of National Socialists (WUNS) and one about the proto-fascism of the Southern states during the American Civil War (1861-1865).
