It is an account of the gradual and relentless perversion of a whole generation of children through the medium. of the 'horror comic' magazines - publications which, to the consternation of all enlightened people, are still being purveyed widely in this country. The children dealt with in this book are American…but the same terrible diet is now being fed to British children. If they are not to go the same way as their counterparts in the U.S.A., it is high time that all responsible people ¨and parents above all should be made fully aware of the extent and danger of this insidious menace which is causing much of the cult of violence among young people today. Illustrated. 397pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
