DEUTSCHLAND OHNE DEUTSCHE. EIN ROMAN VON ÜBERMORGEN. Leipzig: L. Staackmann Verlag, 1930. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-312, original decorated black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in ed, top edge stained red. First edition, later (second?) printing with "Elftes bis fünfzehntes Tausend" on title page. According to Hermand, DEUTSCHLAND OHNE DEUTSCHE (Germany without Germans) is "perhaps the best example" of a German dystopia that reflects the nationalist or National Socialist perception of the growing decline of "volkish" or "German" values in Germany. In this defiant right-wing work "a future Germany is wallowing in a state of complete disintegration and degradation ... Despite the sorry state of Germany, almost no one seems at all indignant about conditions in the Reich, a sure sign of an almost 'jewification' and 'negroidization' of the German people. Faced with such a situation, the few 'racially consciously Germans' (a mere 250,000) emigrate to Norrland in northern Sweden in order to found a colony for the blond and blue-eyed. There they live in splendid isolation from the world, devoting their energies to breeding a new Master Race." - Hermand, pp. 103-4. Fisher, Fantasy and Politics: Visions of the Future in the Weimar Republic, pp. 58-72. Hermand, pp. 103-4. Lexikon 2, pp. 143-4. Bloch (2002) 1477. Not in Nagl. Small repair to cloth at lower outer joint, a clean, bright, very good copy. (#135561).
