KIRKUS REVIEW

Kraus, the Austrian journalist, cultural critic and political satirist is virtually unknown in America though his influence on the culture of fin de siecle Vienna is considered inestimable. Newly edited and abridged by the publisher, The Last Days of Mankind is considered one of his greatest works, possibly the most powerful anti-war drama ever written. An excellent introduction to the man who was intellectual godfather to Wittgenstein, Schonberg, et al.
