Abstract

This article analyses the political career of British fascist Arnold Leese (1878-1956), discussing how one of Britain's most vociferous anti-Semites in the 1920s and 1930s developed his racial and more general ideas. It offers new material on Leese's career in small-town politics. In particular, it explores the extent to which his activism at the local municipal level in both Lincolnshire and Surrey helped shape his wider approach to the 'national' level of politics.
