The terrible implications of the rise of Nazism were rarely so accurately perceived as in A. G. Macdonell's prescient novel, Lords and Masters, first published in 1936. With rapturous satire, Macdonell exposes the unpleasant values of West End Society circles of the early 1930s, where fear of bolshevism led to a dangerous flirtation with fascism. War-profiteer Sir Montagu Anderton-Mawle and Nazi fanatic Veronica Hanson (modeled on Unity Mitford) are among Macdonell's greatest and most memorable characters, deftly personifying the arrogance and hypocrisy of the Mayfair monied set. Potent and prescient, Lords and Masters remains one of A. G.Macdonell's most important and enduring novels
