The Struggle for World Power
1958, first edition of George Knupffer's struggle between Capitalism and Communism
First UK edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 272pp + index.
This book is a fascinating account of the struggle between the materialistic messianists of usury capitalism and global communism and Christian civilization. Knupffer explains how taxes are levied to support, not the people, but the money-lenders; how finance-capitalism created Soviet Communism; how money is created out of nothing and lent at enormous profits to the State, industry and agriculture; and how the economic world is controlled by debt. A prescient foretelling of the collapse of Communism in Russia as well as a warning of the continuing menace of the one-world, debt-ruled superstate.
Quite a rare first edition but in poor condition. The main issue is the dustwrapper had become attached to the front board and has left a significant residue. The dustwrapper is crinkled and creased (but now in a protective sleeve) and one page (41/42) has the bottom corner torn off with slight lack of text.
