"A disturbingly prescient description of the rise of a Fascist-like dictatorship in the United States.... The new order begins after a series of disastrous strikes in the course of which the labor movement is decisively smashed. Although the novel is unrestrained, the writing is forceful. The story moves swiftly and delivers a still shocking impact." *Blake p. 231.
