Notes

First UK edition, first impression, first published in the US the previous year. Burnham's book caused some consternation when first published in England as, originally writing in 1940, Burnham took a German victory more or less for granted. George Orwell reviewed the book critically at length in an essay originally printed in Polemic under the title "Second Thoughts on James Burnham", later reprinted as a pamphlet as James Burnham and the Managerial Revolution in 1946. Burnham's general forecast, that capitalism would be replaced not by socialism but by the rule of managerial administrators, still seems prescient.
