I'm all up to date with how he got to power, and actual Fascism, but can someone direct me to some good notes on what he actually did when he was in power, which I assume is the only other question that can come up...

Cheers

Dude, the great thing about mussolinni is; he didnt do much. He used to SAY he done lods, but in actual fact this was very little. For example, he introduced the Battle for Births- where he offered insentives for big families and penalties for small ones. Extrordinarly, despite him basicly paying people to have sex, the birth rate actualy fell (lol). It is often said that his only real success was making the trains run on time. Also, he reconciled Italy with the church. Realy easy stuff.

And he didn't even make the trains run on time!

It could be said that Fascism was "all surface and little substance." The "corporate state" was the only genuine concept. It was supposed to be a solution to the confrontation between capital and labour. Workers had heard of higher wage packets going to those that had emigrated to the USA, and Mussolini curbed these concerns with substantial organised after work social and sports arrangements. These were provided for every single occupation and were also intended to keep workers from complaining about pay or conditions in the workplace while trade unions were banned. Representatives of workplaces would meet the government but this was not the same. - http://www.hsn.uk.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=4105

Thanks for the replies guys.

It turned out I didn't really need them, as I did his rise to power, which was basically my Extended Essay.
