London, Chatto & Windus, 1929
£580

An adaptation of the essay that originally appeared in The Enemy, No.2, examining the presence and role of 'race-consciousness' in contemporary literature and poetry. In the work Wyndham Lewis contextualises western man's innate tendency for self-destruction, particularly in light of the First World War, and considers the 'melting pot' model that America aspires to, a subject he addresses again in his America and Cosmic Man (1948).
