Foundations, which comes in two volumes, is therefore an essential addition to the library of those seeking to better understand the impetus behind the eugenics and racial movements of the early twentieth century. It is intensely readable, absorbing, and, dare I say it, enjoyable. One does not a read a book like this these days for political and/or scientific instruction, of course; it is, however, an historical primary source of intellectual history, and in that capacity is invaluable to students and scholars alike.
This edition comes in two small blocky paperbacks, each c.600 pages long. It is unattractively bound, and seems to be a facsimile reproduction of the first English language translation. Because of the shoddy binding, it is certainly over-priced; but it does seem to be the only edition currently available. The two volumes do not need to be read together, and for those interested primarily in the racial aspect, the first volume is the one to get in this respect - though it would be no harm to get the second volume too (each must be bought seperatly).
I think there are two types of people who don't like my review. There are the red blooded Nazis who want to kill people, by sitting behind their computers, of course! And there are the frightened chickens who think that Adolf Hitler is gonna kick down their front door and start orating at them.
Both are deluded because they believe that their opinion is the judge.
Me, I'm objective, well I try to be, and I believe I know quality. What is quality? Well loads of experts point out that Russel's History of Western philosophy was based on lecture notes and isn't a serious book, but it is hugely popular. This is a good definition of quantity.
Chamberlain's book is pure quality and it's miles miles miles better written, more open minded, and more memorable than most big sellers, including Russel's. It isn't all that racist too, you see, and this surprises many people. I explained why is isn't all that racist in my deleted reviews so I won't say again.
Google have recently celebrated Nietzsche's 164th birthday on the home screen. But Nietzsche would murder your nan is he ever got into power!
Anyway, this is a quality piece and deserves at least to be on the amazing Sacred Texts website.
P.S. Check out the outstanding Hardcore History podcast called 'Thor's Angels'. It covers the Germanics, from before Tacitus to our times. The Germanics, or, if you prefer, the Scandinavians, were bodyguards to the Caesars for 1000 years.Read more ›
