Our Lords and Masters
Our Lords and Masters
By Anonymous
Simon and Schuster, 1935, 389 pp

The anonymous author of "American Messiahs" has given this book the subtitle "Known and Unknown Rulers of the World." He thinks they number about two hundred. He characterizes many of them -- statesmen, generals and economic magnates -- and the forces which they embody. The book has pretentions to being history, but of course is not. It is contradictory in many of its statements and is often based on gossip.
