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

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

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

About the Author(s)

Wilhelm Reich was an Austrian-American psychoanalyst and psychotherapist. One time student and critic of Freud, he developed many radical ideas, especially regarding the nature and sigificance of sexuality for the human condition. His communist political views also set him opposed to the development of fascism in Europe in the early 20th Century. This, and his early sexual experiences, would greatly inform his work and practice. His radical theories made him one of the most influential and controversial figures in the history of psychiatry. His experiments and theories have influenced decades of psychiatrists and psychologists, and have affected the way therapy is delivered across disciplines.
