Voegelin on the idea of race, an analysis of modern European racism

Baton Rouge: Lousiana State University Press, 1990. xiii, 161p., first edition cloth boards in dj; fine copy.

A discussion of Herr Voegelin's two books, both published in Germany in 1933, rather than the Nazi reaction to them, which was to suppress, confiscate, and destroy as many copies as possible. The Voegelian critique appears to have been, that any notion of biological difference was scientifically unfounded, politically disingenuous, and (in effect) merely a secular version of the (incorrect) claim of "chosen people" status (here of course, Aryan).
