The Nation

“In a shared bit of rhetoric and ideology, National Socialism, Fascism, and the New Deal all depicted their rise to power as the concrete realization of the idea of the nation, which until then had been uninformed, halfhearted, and theoretical.”
— Wolfgang Schivelbusch, Three New Deals: Reflections on Roosevelt’s America, Mussolini’s Italy, and Hitler’s Germany (New York: Metropolitan Books, 2006), p. 119
