The Alternative. Oswald MOSLEY.

The Alternative

Ramsbury, Wilts: Mosley Publications, 1947. First edition. Twelvemo (19 mm x 13 mm). Khaki cloth with black-titling to spine; 313, [7] pp. Mosley published this book after spending most of WWII interned with other leading British fascists. In it, he outlines his alternative for Europe: the unification of European peoples and autonomy from both Soviet communism and American capitalism; the development of Africa for the benefit of Great Britain; and a new government administration termed Hierarchical Synthesis. The book allegedly fared much better in Germany than in Britain where it was largely ignored, although the writer Henry Williamson thought it was Mosley's best book. Printed (crudely) by BUF member and trusted Mosleyite, Alexander Raven Thomson, who began Thomson & Smith Ltd. in late 1946 "for the purpose of independent printing, publishing and publicity work," i.e., to publish fascist works. A Very Good copy lacking the dust jacket. Thin boards are slightly bowed, corners bumped; faint foxing to fore-edge and some thumb-soiling to cloth. Item #02196
