A compact examination of the main political currents in Europe today. Attention is paid to the struggle between conservatives and radicals within the Nazi Government, especially as affected by the deepening economic crisis in Germany; the conflict between Mussolini and Hitler for the control of Austria; the attitude of the Little Entente states towards Anschluss and a Hapsburg restoration; and the choices which seem open to French policy. The final chapter stresses the toll which dictatorship takes in the arts and sciences, and suggests some of the tasks which democracies must face if they are to save civil liberty and begin again the task of building up a system of collective security.
