THE NEW SLAVERY by Hoffman Nickerson


Email this review


An expose of, and a warning against the threats of state serfdom, particularly as manifested in the Soviet Union. Predicating the evil similar in forced labor to that of chattel or open sale slavery, this traces the history of the Soviet system as a history of tyranny, incompatible with the political traditions of civic and religious freedom, develops the dangers of postwar welfare legislation as hastening the growth of the Soviet system throughout the world, and offers the institution of property (not finance-capitalism) as an antidote for a world of the governed submitting to the governors. A sincere, sober appraisal, of the Soviet rule, at home, amongst the Poles, that stresses slavery as the essence of power, which interprets internationally the same material in Dallin & Micolaevsky's Forced Labor In Russia.
