From the jacket- "An inspiring exhortation to the twentieth century in behalf of freedom and hope, and a brilliant, controversial analysis of modern literature, The Stature of Man represents the eternal cry of a new generation in active revolt against decadence and despair. It is an effective intellectual challenge to the materialistic philosophy that has reigned for so many decades."
