About Franklin H. Adler

Adler specializes in political and social theory and comparative politics in Europe. He is the author of "Italian Industrialists From Liberalism to Fascism" which traces the development of industrial associations in Italy from 1906-1934 and challenges traditional interpretations of the rise of facism. He has been working on a major manuscript on Thinking Beyond Antiracism, as well as projects on the European radical right and issues in the liberal-communitarian debate.
