Shaping the New Man
By

Rating
Despite their undeniable importance, the leaders of the Fascist and Nazi youth organizations have received little attention from historians. In Shaping the New Man, Alessio Ponzio uncovers the largely untold story of the training and education of these crucial protagonists of the Fascist and Nazi regimes, and he examines more broadly the structures, ideologies, rhetoric, and aspirations of youth organizations in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. Ponzio shows how the Italian Fascists' pedagogical practices influenced the origin and evolution of the Hitler Youth. He dissects similarities and differences in the training processes of the youth leaders of the Opera Nazionale Balilla, Gioventu Italiana del Littorio, and Hitlerjugend. And, he explores the transnational institutional interactions and mutual cooperation that flourished between Mussolini's and Hitler's youth organizations in the 1930s and 1940s.

Reviews

A valuable and original contribution to the historiography of the totalitarian project in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. Alessio Ponzio should especially be commended for his transnational focus and for the rigor with which he traces the interactions, influences, and tensions between the youth organizations of the two regimes."-Joshua Arthurs, author of Excavating Modernity: The Roman Past in Fascist Italy
