Facing down the fascist threat.

The Second World War and its events may have told us 'Never Again,' and yet the threat of fascism and far-right extremism has never gone away. From 'Hurrah for the Blackshirts' to today's 'Make America Great Again' and the 'Britain is Full' message behind much of the Brexit campaigning, and now Pandemic uncertaities and new scapegoats, the need for resources, information, resources and awareness to counter the threat has never been greater. This is one such resource. Its informative, educative, and varied in format and content, from news bulletins to book reviews to short documentaries. Recommended and needed.
