The Decline and Fall of the British Empire

By Robert Briffault
Simon and Schuster, 1938
264 pp. $2.00

A blistering diatribe against practically everything British, in particular the hypocrisy that England is the bulwark of democracy. According to Mr. Briffault, an anthropologist and novelist as well as a political cynic, the British Empire is disintegrating, a process forwarded by the persistent stupidity of its governing class.
