Overview

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."

Responsibility for the elimination of fascism thus rests with the masses of average people who might otherwise support and champion it.

Wilhelm Reich was an Austrian psychoanalyst. A member of the second generation of analysts after Sigmund Freud and the author of several influential books - most notable Character Analysis and The Sexual Revolution. Reich became known as one of the most radical figures in the history of psychiatry.
