We’ll discuss FASCISM: A WARNING Madeleine Albright A personal and urgent examination of Fascism in the twentieth century and how its legacy shapes today’s world, written by one of America’s most admired public servants, the first woman to serve as U.S. secretary of state A fascist, observes Madeleine Albright, “is someone who claims to speak for a whole nation or group, is utterly unconcerned with the rights of others, and is willing to use violence and whatever other means are necessary to achieve the goals he or she might have.” Fascism, she shows, not only endured through the 20th century but now presents a more virulent threat to peace and justice than at any time since the end of WWII. Here is a book for our times that is relevant to all times, written by someone who has not only studied history but helped to shape it. Charles Heller will lead the discussion. — Paperback and Kindle available. Join us even if you haven’t finished reading. The SHSNY Book Club is open to all … and free!
