Read from November 01 to 07, 2011

Very well-researched, but at times it can feel like a collection of interesting facts in search of a thesis. Nonetheless, very interesting how much the mood in the late 1930s sounds like the mood now. Almost heartening, given the Second World War didn't (quite) end civilisation like everyone expected...
