The only authorised edition, newly translated from the original German
Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) was an Austrian doctor of medicine and psychoanalyst. He wrote several books, most notably Character Analysis (1933), The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933), and The Sexual Revolution (1936).
Written in 1942 with the terrible reality of Nazism all around,
Reich's book is as relevant now as it was then. -- New Psychiatry *
Reich really strikes to the core of fascism's mass appeal. His analysis of the twentieth century's dangerous inhibition of sexual instincts, and his reasons why... people attach such significance to the concepts of 'law and order' and 'the family' have become important contributions to the study of crowd control and manipulation. It is very easy to see why this book was banned by the Nazis. -- Gongster * The University of Nottingham *
