Summary Urbanism in dictatorship has been discussed from the national view only, but urbanism has always been an instrument to gain recognition by other states. The book analyses dictatorship in Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany and the Soviet Union, discusses the current state of research and presents new research. An overall view helps to understand the characteristics of each country and prevents to oversimplify the understanding of dictatorship
