The Annihilation of Man: a Study of the Crisis in the West

By Leslie Paul

Harcourt, 1945, 214 pp.

The essential thesis on which this provocative book rests is that the conditions out of which Fascism and Nazism grew exist in other countries -- notably Great Britain -- and that we cannot therefore consider the war won merely with the military defeat of Germany. Mr. Paul finds that the disease from which European civilization suffers is more spiritual than material.
