Topographies of Fascism offers the first comprehensive exploration of how Spanish fascist writing – essays, speeches, articles, propaganda materials, poems, novels, and memoirs – represented and created space from the early 1920s until the late 1950s. Nil Santiáñez contends that fascism expressed its views on the state, the nation, and the society in spatial terms (for example, the state as a “building,” the nation as an “organic unity,” and society as the “people’s community”), just as its adherents celebrated fascism in its architecture, public spectacles, and military rituals.

While Topographies of Fascism centres on Spain, a nation that produced a large number of fascist texts focused on space, it also draws on works written by key German, Italian, and French fascist politicians and intellectuals. Ultimately, it provides an innovative model for analyzing the comparable yet often overlooked strategies of symbolic representation and production of space in fascist political and cultural discourse.

Review:

Topographies of Fascism is an original, ambitious, and innovative study which offers fascinating insights into the use and representation of space in Spanish fascism... Only with books like this will the spectre of Spanish fascism be finally exorcised.’

(Jordi Cornellà Bulletin of Spanish Studies January 2016)

‘This is a good tool for writers and researchers interested in Spanish Civil War, fascist politics, and literature.’

(C. Prieto Choice Magazine, vol 51:06:2014)
