Published in both cloth and paper wrappers, this being one of the former. "Written in 1932 by an author who calls himself "Kondor," GELB-WEIß (Yellow-White) is exemplary of the second, overtly imperialist group of futuristic novels written between 1929 and 1933. True to form, GELB-WEIß represents those novels where idealistic fig leaves drop like stones, revealing imperialism's naked striving for power." - Jost Hermand. "Kondor's GELB-WEIß is an example of a vision purely the product of the pleasure principle. The main theme of this book is a great war between the "white" and "yellow" races ... instead of supporting the Asians in their conflict with England and France, Germany sides with its former enemies to save the "white" race from extinction." - Peter Fisher.
