A portrayal of the apocalypse, which for the author are all the 19th century revolutions in Europe. He has put an equality sign between Dante's Inferno and the camps of the revolutionaries, which he obviously criticizes and detests. He takes the side of the religious aristocracy, which makes this book an obvious propaganda, which is what I didn't like about it; but overall it shows an interesting view on the changes in society and therefore it is worth reading.
Książka jest dobra, ale jak jest czytana z własnej woli i po gruntownym wprowadzeniu. Miałam problemy z jej przeczytaniem mimo, że wchłaniam książki.
