Russian Prosecutors Plan to Ban Mussolini Book

Russian Prosecutors Plan to Ban Mussolini Book

Moscow prosecutors said on Thursday  that “The Third Way” book, which compiles two works by World War II Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, should be withdrawn from all Russian bookstores.

      The ban required a court decision, the prosecutors said on their website. But that measure appeared a formality because  Russian legislation explicitly bans all works by fascist Italian and Nazi German ideologues as extremist.

      The publication in question compiles Mussolini’s autobiography and his ideological manifesto “The Doctrine of Fascism,” according to the description at one of online bookstores. The book is now actually available from several online retailers.

      The book came out last year in a series called “Works of the Great,” which also included a 1923 novel by Joseph Goebbels, who went on to become the propaganda mastermind of Nazi Germany.

      St. Petersburg prosecutors sought a court ban on Goebbels’ book after a prominent newspaper wrote about the novel’s  publication in mid-August, but no ban was reported as of Thursday.
