Between the Swastika and the Cross of Lorraine
Fascisms in Interwar Alsace
Samuel Huston Goodfellow
"Goodfellow's book—much more than a history of Fascism—provides us with a fascinating insight into the way in which Alsatian parties were split by nationalism, regionalism, and autonomism, and by the linguistic, religious, and social conflicts of interwar Alsace."—French History
"An important case study in the existence and complexities of French fascism."—American Historical Review
"A valuable, fresh, and original contribution to the literature."—William D. Irvine, York University
Through the unique window of Alsace during the 1920s and 1930s, Goodfellow reveals the many faces of fascism and demonstrates its flexibility and coherence as an ideology. His study of this region, where the interplay of French, German, and Alsatian nationalities allowed a variety of fascisms to flourish, proves a famework for understanding how this ideology has mutated over time to fit changing contexts.
