It Is Later Than You Think: the Need for a Militant Democracy

By Max Lerner

A pretty sane book, at least in its diagnosis of present ills. Mr. Lerner, formerly editor of the Nation and now professor of political science at Williams College, finds liberalism to be less than democracy. What the world needs, he tells us, is more democracy (for which a collectivist definition is implied) if we are to escape Fascism.
