Descrição do produto

SWASTIKA NIGHT takes place seven hundred years after Nazism achieved power, by which time Adolf Hitler is worshipped as a god. Elsewhere, the Japanese rule the Americas, Australia, and Asia. Though Japan is the only rival superpower to the Nazi West, their inevitable wars always end in stalemate. The fascist Germans and Japanese suffer much difficulty in maintaining their populations, because of the physical degeneration of their women.
The protagonist is an Englishman named Alfred on a German pilgrimage. In Europe, the English are loathed because they were the last opponents of Nazi Germany in the war. Per official history, Hitler is a tall, blond god who personally won the war. Alfred is astounded when shown a secret, historic photograph depicting Hitler and a girl before a crowd. He is shocked that Hitler was a small man with dark hair and a paunch. And his discovery may mean his death...

3.0 de 5 estrelas Good thing the bad guys lost in real life 4 de agosto de 2014
Por runner30 - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Fascinating and horrifying ideas pertaining to "What if the Nazis had won?" set about 700 years after WWII. The extent to which Nazism (and maybe all modern tyrannies) depends on emotional response in place of thinking is well thought out here (as are other causes & effects). The book is especially startling given it was written in 1937 -- it anticipates there will be a Holocaust, an Axis attempt at world conquest, and that the cruelest fighting will occur in Russia. Unfortunately at least half the ideas here are presented in a long, multiple-chapter conversation between two characters. The actual story comes across as an afterthought, which prevents this from being a great book. Still, it is thought-provoking and startling, and worth a read.

5.0 de 5 estrelas The reduction of women in a world where Hitler won the war 2 de novembro de 2003
Por Lawrance Bernabo - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
"Swastika Night" was published in 1937, although the fact that "Murray Constantine" was a pseudonym for Katharine Burdekin was not revealed until the early 1980s (Burdekin died in 1963). The chief interest in this dystopian novel was that Burdekin was telling the story of a feudal Europe that existed seven centuries into a world in which Hitler and the Nazi achieved total victory. The novel begins with a "knight" entering "the Holy Hitler chapel," where the faithful all sing the praise of "God the Thunderer" and: "His Son our Holy Adolf Hitler, the Only Man. Who was, not begotten, not born of a woman, but Exploded!" With such a beginning it is hard not to look at "Swastika Night" as a nightmarish version of the Germany and England that would result from a Nazi victory. Given the time in which she was writing, two years before Hitler's forces invaded Poland and officially began the Second World War, it is equally obvious that Burdekin is simultaneously an indictment of Hitler's political and militaristic policies and a warning of the logical consequences of the Nazi ideology.
Burdekin depicts a world that has been divided into the Nazi Empire (Europe and Africa) and the equally militaristic Japanese Empire (Asia, Australia, and the Americas), a demarcation that raises some interesting issues all by itself. Obviously in the Nazi Empire Hitler is venerated as a god and all books and documents from the past have been destroyed so that the Nazi version of history is all that remains (the similarity is more to the efforts of the ancient Egytpian pharoahs than Orwell's idea of the continuous revision of the public record). With all of the Jews having been exterminated at the start of the Nazi era, it is now Christians who are the reviled object of Nazi persecution, as well as those who are "Not Blood." Burdekin's protagonist is an Englishman named Alfred (suggesting parallels to England's legendary king Alfred the Great), who rejects the violence, brutality, and militarism of Nazi ideology because it results not in boys rather than men.
However, the fact that Hitler lost World War II does not mean that "Swastika Night" does not speak to contemporary readers in an important way. After all, we have not been progressing towards the dystopian vision of George Orwell and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" is still the mos widely read dystopian novel around. Burdekin's novel also explores the connection between gender and political power. Part of Hitler's deification is because he was never contaminated by contact with women, and In contrast to the "cult of masculinity," Burdekin depicts a "Reduction of Women" in which all women are kept ignorant and apathetic, their own function being for purposes of breeding. She clearly say the male apotheosis of women as mothers as being the first step on the slippery slope to the degradation of women to mere breeding animals. Despite the obvious comparisons to "Nineteen Eighty-Four," it is the contrast between the womanless world of "Swastika Night" and the woman-centered utopia of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "Herland" (or even Virginia Woolf's "Three Guinesas," published in 1938) that most students of utopian literature are going to want to pursue.
Once World War II began "Swastika Night" became a historical footnote, especially since its pacifism would have been considered an impractical response to Hitler once war was declared. But today the feminist arguments regarding hypertrophied masculinity and the correlating reduction of women that are as much a part of the work as the condemnation of Nazi ideology makes it well worth consideration by contemporary readers.
5.0 de 5 estrelas Prescient novel throws light on current political situation 5 de abril de 2017
Por Chris W. - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Rather stilted (it was written in the 1930's) and the characters are not much more than puppets to represent certain ideologies and attitudes, nevertheless it has an important message for us today as we again see the rise of the "strong man" as the answer to failures of political leadership. The fact that Donald Trump has boasted of "pussy-grabbing" shows how accurate this book is in its linkage of fascism and misogyny.
4.0 de 5 estrelas Amazing that it was written prior to WWII 12 de junho de 2016

A very interesting book. Amazing that it was written prior to WWII. Set 700 years after a Nazi victory, it explores themes of institutionalized fascism, manipulation of history, religion and myth, and also misogyny.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Chilling Story of Nazi Victory- Written Before WWII! 16 de novembro de 2000
Por Cody Carlson - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Katharine Burdekin's 1937 novel, 'Swastika Night,' is a rare work of science fiction that explores not only the evils of military totalitarianism, but also closely examines the realationship between the sexes. Over 700 years into the Hitlerian era Europe has become a fuedel society where Hitler is God, Christians are persecuted, and women are reduced to the status of animal breeders. A Nazi leader, the Knight von Hess, gives a disillusioned Englishman the greatest of gifts- a book written centuries before that tells the true story of world history and not the Hitler version that Germany accepts as gospel. It's easy to see the many similarities between 'Swastika Night' and George Orwell's '1984.' Both novels take place in a repressive, totalitarian society where a government leader deigns to help a member of the lower class. Also, the themes of massive nation-states in constant competition and degradaded womanhood make one wonder just how much Orwell 'borrowed' from Burdekin. What makes this novel truly amazing, however, is Burdekin's prediction of the horrors to come. She wrote of the comming war with Germany, predicting both the extermination of the Jews and the prolonged, devastating war in Russia. A wonderful work on many levels, 'Swastika Night' is more than just an entertaining novel, it's an important one.
