Swastika night - Katherin Burdekin

Published in 1937, twelve years before Orwell's 1984, Swastika Night is an outstanding example of dystopian fiction. Weaving a tale of feudal Europe seven centuries into a post-Hitlerian society, Burdekin's novel explores the connection between gender and political power and anticipates modern feminist science fiction. Readers will be reminded of 1984 and Charlotte Perkin's Herland and note the sharp contrast between the women- centered world of Herland and the womenless one of Swastika Night.

Some may also find this interesting. It gave me a lot to think about as a young man.

Thanks wojtek, Not read it yets, but it might be better if you cropped the image and made it into one file for convenience.
You could even put it into epub format if you pick up an OCR reader.
