The Swastika: Symbol Beyond Redemption?
This book presents an exploration of the meaning, mysteries, and misunderstanding of the most powerful symbol in the history of mankind. The book analyzes the swastika's pre-Nazi religious and commercial uses in all of its varied permutations, the Nazi appropriation and misuses of the form, and its contemporary applications as both a racist and an apolitical icon. Tracing the symbol to its beginnings in antiquity, the author explores the myth and cult of swastika lore and its evolving use as a commercial trademark and logo, then speculates on the future of the symbol in two final, thought-provoking chapters.
