Reviews

'Wide-ranging, well-informed and measured in its judgements, Willie Thompson's new book provides a first-rate introduction to movements and ideas in the so-called 'age of ideologies''
*Professor Kevin Morgan, School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester*

'Aptly characterises the deadly contest over which ideology shall prevail, ending with Fascism's destruction in war, communism's dissolution from within, and liberalism/conservatism's emergence intact'
*CHOICE*
