This book takes as its focus the response of the English intelligentsia to the new, and supposedly threatening, phenomenon of mass culture. It shows how the attitudes of disdain and preciousness expressed in writing of the 1880-1939 period - whether by D.H. Lawrence or George Gissing, Virginia Woolf or Evelyn Waugh - was culpably related to the Nietzchian philosophical tradition which found its ultimate exponent in Hitler.
