7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By James E. Egolf VINE VOICE on March 12, 2006
Format: Unknown Binding
Lawrence Dennis THE DYNAMICS OF WAR AND REVOLUTION can be viewed as the last book of a trilogy. Dennis had previously written IS CAPITALISM DOOMED (1932) and THE COMING OF AMERICAN FASCISM (1936). Dennis knew that by 1940 that the New Deal was a failure, and the economic and social pressures favoring war were part of the New Dealers' attempt to end serious unemployment.

Dennis diagnosed the economic situation late in the New Deal, and he was clear that the New Deal programs were not the economic generator the New Dealers, including FDR, had hope for. Dennis asserted that the New Dealers would resort to war and military conscription as an unemployment blotter to solve the problems of the New Deal.

Dennis was also clear that the New Dealers needed a scapegoat to explain previous New Deal failures. Readers should know that there were about as many Americans unemployed in 1938 as there were in 1932 which was the year that FDR won the presidential election. Dennis accurately predicted that with the failure of the New Deal, the political and economic "dynamics" now favored war to establish full employment.

Dennis has interesting statements regarding scapegoats. In spite of slurs and smears of Dennis being a spokesman for Fascism and National Socialism, Dennis compared Hitler's scapegoating of Jews with the New Dealers scapegoating the Germans for all the economic problems during the latter stages of the the New Deal failures. One should note that Dennis is clear how stupid and counterproductive anti-Semitism was. As an aside, Dennis was accused of being a "racist" whatever that has come to mean these days. Dennis was born to a mulatto mother and was raised by mullatoes in Georgia.
