For a good recent example of the refusal to see totalitarianism as anything but a rhetorical creature of the Cold War, see Novick, Holocaust in American Life, 86. Novick insists that the term was "coined in the interwar years, but [came] into wide usage after 1945." But the sources that Novick cites, most notably Abbott Gleason's Totalitarianism, indicate that the term was regularly used in the United States by the end of the 1930s. Similarly, a paper based on this manuscript was dismissed by a well-known American historian because it is common knowledge that totalitarianism was a product of the Cold War.

For the most thorough exploration of this tradition, see Kazin, Populist Per- suasion.
