H. Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Erskine Caldwell, Archibald MacLeish, Joseph Wood Krutch, and Henry Hazlitt, and makes a devastating attack on Fascism and on the "Fascist Unconscious," which he finds in the work of may famous modern writers, as the force that will, if it triumphs, mark the doom of Western Culture."
