RCPE Bulletin, n14-16 1986
This bulletin, produced by Research Committee on Political Education (RCPE), contains three articles, two conference reports, book reviews, and membership information. "Fantasy and Vengeance: Observations on the Origins of Right-Wing Violence in Italy and in the United States" (L. Weinberg) examines the rise of neo-fascism in Italy and the United States and the formation of the U.S. group known as The Order of Brotherhood. Weinberg discusses the influence of fantasy fiction, written by William Pierce and J. R. R. Tolkien, on these organizations and compares the characteristics of Italians and U.S. citizens drawn to these groups. "The Political Socialization of Youth" (L. Boros; L. Keri) discusses this phenomena through social background, the internal processes, formal reinforcements, generational contradictions, and autonomy. "Proposals Concerning International Cooperation in the Field of Political Education" (H. Hooghoff) offers suggestions to improve the status and quality of political studies in Europe. The two conference reports contain a list of the four panels and 29 papers presented at the 1987 International Congress on Political Education (Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico) and 20 papers from the 1987 RCPE International Round Table Conference (Cologne, West Germany).
