04/15/1937William Henry Chamberlin

The book attempts to set forth a reasoned case for the proposition that collectivism, both in its communist and in its fascist forms, is a false Utopia, on the basis of the demonstrable facts of the Soviet, Germany, and Italian experiments. There is also an effort to show the positive complement of this negative proposition: that free institutions possess a pragmatic value far outweighing the largely illusory advantages of the short-cut methods of dictatorship.
