The Spirit and Structure of German Fascism

The Spirit and Structure of German Fascism
By Robert A. Brady
420 pp, Viking, 1937

This is the most up-to-date vivisection of Nazism. The author, Associate Professor of Economics in the University of California and a convinced Marxist, explains the phenomenon of Hitler primarily as an intensification of German capitalism to the monopoly point. This doctrine is not new and its constant reiteration here may annoy many readers. Nevertheless, Professor Brady's thorough command of the subject he treats will inspire respect from the most hardened of old-fashioned liberals. His chapters on cultural and other non-economic matters are recommended.
