May’s Book: The New Totalitarians

The Brave New World.The history of a doomed State.Are you ready for a completely obscure (even for us) PD Book Club pick for May? Okay, we warned you.

Last week’s peek into the political climate of Sweden got us wondering about the history behind the often quoted socialist utopia, which led our staff to Roland Huntford’s The New Totalitarians Brave New Sweden.

Written decades ago, The New Totalitarians shows a fascinating time capsule of the Swedish State and reads like prophecy.

While it might be hard to keep up with the Olaf name game and some parts might crawl by, the lines drawn by Huntford remarkably seem to fit a modern day USA. With 354 pages, we recommend taking this one a little at a time.$150 is a bit pricey…

As we said in the beginning, this is an obscure pick so getting a hardback copy for your bookshelf will cost you. If you’re about that life click here or on our side margin. If not, here’s a link for a free pdf version you can move to your Kindle.

Don’t forget to let us know what you think down below, and we promise, our June pick will be everything you’d want in a summer beach read. Promise, promise.

    I would like to know more about Sweden, but this is really random. The free PDF looks nice.

    I'm too depressed since the Cruz announcement. Can next month be uplifting?
