Professor Michael Marrus' Op-Ed in the Globe and Mail

July 7, 2017 by Department of History Staff

Professor Michael Marrus wrote an op-ed column for the Globe and Mail exploring the question “Is Donald Trump a fascist?” In the op-ed, Professor Marrus discusses the definition of the term, the historical manifestations of fascism and, what he argues, is the new rise of fascism in the United States- not “neatly” recognizable as the political movement 80 years ago.

Professor Michael Marrus is the Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Professor Emeritus of Holocaust Studies at the University of Toronto. In winter 2018, Professor Marrus will be teaching HIS493H1-S: The Modern Evolution of the Law of War.
