KIRKUS REVIEW

Patterns of delusion are explored in relation to modern problems from their historical sources to their use today. The falsehoods, bogies, pipe dreams, actual hate rumors are exposed as weapons against human progress, freedom and liberty. The haze of error around religious and racial prejudice, the attacks used in commercial warfare, the whispering campaigns in political and labor fields, the victimization in get rich quick promotions, and the elements of wartime propaganda- these are dissected, discussed and dismembered for a public which needs an objective, balanced, aware point of view. An interesting project for all cognizant of the festering poison implicit in human credulity.
