Overview

Through studious research into past civilizations, Burnham diagnoses the twentieth century and finds it afflicted with destructive, even "suicidal" tendencies—all of which arise from the "Liberal syndrome" and its inherent applications. The book explores several important questions, including why Liberalism clashes with Christianity and how Liberalism is a root cause of race riots and the rapid growth in crime. For James Burnham, who died in 1987, this book is certainly one of his greatest legacies.
