CRITIQUE JOHN WEISS (Bronx, N.Y., U.S.A.) Fascism in Czechoslovakia, 1919-39 I . Until recently there has been very little information about fascist move- ments in nations other than Italy and Germany, and almost nothing about such movements in Eastern Europe. Those concerned with the comparative study of fascism who wish to arrive at a general understanding of the phe- nomenon have been severely restricted by being forced to rely far too much on the Italian and German experiences. For this reason alone, those of us who are not specialists in Eastern Europe welcome a discussion of fascism in Czechoslovakia. At the start, let me express how strongly I agree with Professor Jelinek's hope that we can replace the term "fascism" with the phrase "radical right" or perhaps "radical nationalist right." The new designation would be more empirically accurate; it would also enable us to avoid the tiresome necessity of viewing Italian fascism as the model against which all other European radical-right movements must be measured. Interminable discussions as to what is and what is not fascism would thus be avoided. We need, in short, a clear recognition that the Fascisti and the Nazis were national variations of reactionary
