Katharine Burdekin (23 July 1896 - 10 August 1963) (born Katharine Penelope Cade) was a British novelist who wrote speculative fiction concerned with social and spiritual matters. She also wrote under the name Kay Burdekin and under the pseudonym Murray Constantine. She married Olympic rower and barrister Beaufort Burdekin, in 1915, and had two daughters from this marriage, in 1917 and 1920. The family moved to Australia, where Katharine Burdekin started writing. Her first novel, Anna Colquhoun, was published in 1922. Her marriage ended in the same year, and she moved back to the UK. In 1926, she met a woman with whom she formed a lifelong relationship. Katharine Burdekin died in 1963. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

It was a real surprise to excavate this marvelous book. The book is a chilling future Dystopian vision. All those who have never read the book, and love _Brave New World_ or _1984_ should go for it!!

Das Buch von K. Burdekin ist lesenswert und spannend. Es klärt über eine distopische Sicht einer Nazigewaltherrschaft in Europa auf. Unterdrückung, Angst, Terror und Frauenerniedrigung sind lebhaft beschrieben und geben dem Leser ein schockierendes Was-Wäre-Wenn-Bild einer Zukunft, die glücklicherweise keine geworden ist.

This book has its value in the history of literature, seeing how it (too crudely) attacks fascism years before its most gruesome horrors became reality. The prophetic strength of this book is really amazing, yet I would not call it a good literary work. Read it if you are into utopian and distopian literature!

A Chilling Story of Nazi Victory- Written Before WWII! 16. November 2000
Von Cody Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Katharine Burdekin's 1937 novel, 'Swastika Night,' is a rare work of science fiction that explores not only the evils of military totalitarianism, but also closely examines the realationship between the sexes. Over 700 years into the Hitlerian era Europe has become a fuedel society where Hitler is God, Christians are persecuted, and women are reduced to the status of animal breeders. A Nazi leader, the Knight von Hess, gives a disillusioned Englishman the greatest of gifts- a book written centuries before that tells the true story of world history and not the Hitler version that Germany accepts as gospel. It's easy to see the many similarities between 'Swastika Night' and George Orwell's '1984.' Both novels take place in a repressive, totalitarian society where a government leader deigns to help a member of the lower class. Also, the themes of massive nation-states in constant competition and degradaded womanhood make one wonder just how much Orwell 'borrowed' from Burdekin. What makes this novel truly amazing, however, is Burdekin's prediction of the horrors to come. She wrote of the comming war with Germany, predicting both the extermination of the Jews and the prolonged, devastating war in Russia. A wonderful work on many levels, 'Swastika Night' is more than just an entertaining novel, it's an important one.

The reduction of women in a world where Hitler won the war 2. November 2003
Von Lawrance Bernabo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"Swastika Night" was published in 1937, although the fact that "Murray Constantine" was a pseudonym for Katharine Burdekin was not revealed until the early 1980s (Burdekin died in 1963). The chief interest in this dystopian novel was that Burdekin was telling the story of a feudal Europe that existed seven centuries into a world in which Hitler and the Nazi achieved total victory. The novel begins with a "knight" entering "the Holy Hitler chapel," where the faithful all sing the praise of "God the Thunderer" and: "His Son our Holy Adolf Hitler, the Only Man. Who was, not begotten, not born of a woman, but Exploded!" With such a beginning it is hard not to look at "Swastika Night" as a nightmarish version of the Germany and England that would result from a Nazi victory. Given the time in which she was writing, two years before Hitler's forces invaded Poland and officially began the Second World War, it is equally obvious that Burdekin is simultaneously an indictment of Hitler's political and militaristic policies and a warning of the logical consequences of the Nazi ideology.
Burdekin depicts a world that has been divided into the Nazi Empire (Europe and Africa) and the equally militaristic Japanese Empire (Asia, Australia, and the Americas), a demarcation that raises some interesting issues all by itself. Obviously in the Nazi Empire Hitler is venerated as a god and all books and documents from the past have been destroyed so that the Nazi version of history is all that remains (the similarity is more to the efforts of the ancient Egytpian pharoahs than Orwell's idea of the continuous revision of the public record). With all of the Jews having been exterminated at the start of the Nazi era, it is now Christians who are the reviled object of Nazi persecution, as well as those who are "Not Blood." Burdekin's protagonist is an Englishman named Alfred (suggesting parallels to England's legendary king Alfred the Great), who rejects the violence, brutality, and militarism of Nazi ideology because it results not in boys rather than men.
However, the fact that Hitler lost World War II does not mean that "Swastika Night" does not speak to contemporary readers in an important way. After all, we have not been progressing towards the dystopian vision of George Orwell and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" is still the mos widely read dystopian novel around. Burdekin's novel also explores the connection between gender and political power. Part of Hitler's deification is because he was never contaminated by contact with women, and In contrast to the "cult of masculinity," Burdekin depicts a "Reduction of Women" in which all women are kept ignorant and apathetic, their own function being for purposes of breeding. She clearly say the male apotheosis of women as mothers as being the first step on the slippery slope to the degradation of women to mere breeding animals. Despite the obvious comparisons to "Nineteen Eighty-Four," it is the contrast between the womanless world of "Swastika Night" and the woman-centered utopia of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "Herland" (or even Virginia Woolf's "Three Guinesas," published in 1938) that most students of utopian literature are going to want to pursue.
Once World War II began "Swastika Night" became a historical footnote, especially since its pacifism would have been considered an impractical response to Hitler once war was declared. But today the feminist arguments regarding hypertrophied masculinity and the correlating reduction of women that are as much a part of the work as the condemnation of Nazi ideology makes it well worth consideration by contemporary readers.

Interesting Alternate History 24. Januar 2012
Von Helmut von Seydlitz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book in the bargain bin for a dollar and it was a dollar well spent! I personally just found the setting of this book to be very interesting. It takes place hundreds of years into Hitler's "Thousand Year Reich," which won the war in this alternate world. The entire world is under the dominion of either the German or Japanese empires, who rule feudal male-centered empires. Between the two empires, most of the history has been either forcibly forgotten or grotesquely manipulated to serve the fascist states.

The story takes place in Nazi Europe and mainly involves a British man on pilgrimage, a German serf, and a Nazi Knight. Between the three of them they delve into the lost world of the past and try to create a better future. The characters aren't evenly flushed out but that does serve the atmosphere of the book, that taking away men's(and women's) liberty takes something out of life.

Part of the reason that the book is so powerful is because it was written before the Second World War, when Hitler was still on the rise and there was no guarantee that Fascism would not spread across the world.

All in all it was an interesting read.

Overlooked Work 31. Dezember 2001
Von Eric Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
A fascinating book on many levels. Burdekin wasn't afraid to tackle topics of religion and politics head on. If you like 'We' and '1984', you won't want to put this book down.
