One of relatively few contemporary works of social fiction to deal directly with the American nativist fascism and its roots in the Great Depression. "Those of us who have wondered at the mental processes of the young men who stand on street corners in New York and other cities, selling the weekly publications of Father So-and-So and shrieking and-Semitic slogans, need wonder no longer..."
