The Coming Victory of Democracy
The Coming Victory of Democracy
By Thomas Mann
Knopf, 1938, 70 pp.

A masterpiece of courageous thinking and clear exposition (originally delivered as a lecture) by the greatest of living novelists, now an exile from his native land. Democracy's danger is, he asserts, the illusion that it can coexist in peace with totalitarian states. He pleads for a strengthening of democracy through the extension of its principles from the political to the social and economic spheres.
