Abstract

Practices aimed at creating terror and fear in the population for political purposes, repressive policies based on discriminatory assumptions, propaganda strategies aimed at identify enemy – whether internal or external to the community of concern –, “politics of hate”, have spanned centuries and continents, but reached unprecedented levels during the Twentieth century. In the course of history, the process of creating the image of the “enemy” has often taken place among people of the same nationality, but strategies aimed at the construction of external enemies were equally widespread. This monographic issue intends to contribute to the creation of a space of historiographical debate on “hatred and enemy”, inevitably wide and complex, through the reconstruction of specific case studies that analyze the different shapes and forms taken by these phenomena in different moments and places, during the 20th century.
