The FULL unedited version. This book, once described as “surely one of the most incendiary works ever to be published anywhere” is a no-holds-barred philosophical venture into the meaning of the Jewish origins of Christianity, of nature over nurture, might over morals, of power over weakness, the right of the strongest to rule, the survival of the fittest and the belief that the world is governed by force, not by religious or moral creeds. It makes Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince pale by comparison.
It is a book which, even a century after its first publication, still stirs huge debate. The reader is likely to be staggered, shake his or her head in agreement, be dumfounded or laugh out loud—even in anguish—from page to page. It is a call to man’s primeval instinct of survival, of struggle and of the power of life over death.
