King Mob is a violent attack of the power of modern advertising and the means through which the government attempts to gain control over an ever-increasing population. Singling out the true criminals and exposing the corruption created by those agencies on the collective American mind, the author then formulates a path to inspire rebellion against this totalitarianism. His book becomes a rallying point for all who have the courage to stand as individuals for common welfare, against the tyranny of the masses.
Maurice Samuel (1895-1972) was a Romanian-born British and American novelist, lecturer, and translator. He wrote the nonfiction King Mob under the pseudonym Frank K. Notch.
DJ front flap has summary of content. DJ back flap has summary of another book published by Harcourt, The Modern Temper, by Joseph Wood Krutch.
