In this classic study, Reich provides unique insight into the phenomenon of fascism, which continues to ravage the international community in ways great and small.

Drawing on his medical experiences with men and women of various classes, races, nations, and religious beliefs, Reich refutes the still generally helf notion that fascism is a specific characteristic of certain nationalities or a political party of ideology that is imposed on innocent people by means of force or political maneuvers. \"Fascism is only the organised political expression of the structure of the average man\'s character. It is basic emotional attitude of the suppressed man of our authoritarian machine civilization and its mechanistic-mystical conception of life.\""""
