This article examines Perroux's intellectual career, from the interwar period to the Vichy period, in the light of his Grand Tour of European authoritarian regimes. By assessing Perroux's singular analysis of the Italian, German, Austrian and Portuguese regimes, we will illuminate how Perroux used foreign fascist experi-ences to speak about France and the organization of Europe as a whole. Ultimate-ly, by analysis Perroux's thoughts it will enable us to develop our understanding of how the Vichy regime perceived itself, and can, thus, contribute to recent debates concerning the ideological nature—fascist or not—of the Vichy regime.
