Notes

First edition, first impression. Written following the author's visit to Berlin in 1937, Lewis's book takes its ghastly title from a now-forgotten 1931 bestseller called The English: Are They Human? by the Dutch humourist G. J. Renier. An avowedly anti-fascist book, it was intended partly as an apology for his earlier ill-judged writings on the subject, consequently being "reviewed negatively by the British Union Quarterly, and enthusiastically welcomed by the Jewish Chronicle" (Waddell, "Lewis and Fascism" in The Cambridge Companion to Wyndham Lewis, p. 87).
