While the book appears to argue that Nazi and fascist dictators are preferable to the "yellow menace" of the Manchu man, however it shows that these men are presumptuous, arrogant and ready to be overthrown. The book is certainly racist (all other entries in the series to some degree), as the reviewers below point out, but at the same time it supports peace and common sense in the year before the outbreak of World War II. ..
