&nbsp&nbsp&nbspPublished in 1937, twelve years before Orwell's '1984', this novel projects a totally male-led fascist world that has eliminated women as we know them. They are breeders, kept as cattle, while men in this post-Hitlerian world are embittered automatons, fearful of all feelings, having abolished all history, education, creativity, books, and art. Not even the memory of culture remains. The plot centers on a "misfit" who asks, as readers must, "How could this have happenned?" Ann J. Lane calls the novel a "brilliant, chilling dystopia." "This is a powerful, haunting vision of the inner and outer worlds of male violence."- Blanche Wiesen Cook , author of 'Eleanor Roosevelt: Volume One, 1884-1933'
