About this Item

Octavo. 223,[3]pp. Three-quarter leather over brown cloth, gold lettering on spine. True first edition of Fry's anti-Semitic work. Waters Flowing Eastward claims that Jews were to blame for both Capitalism and Bolshevism as well as starting World War I. The author asserts that the Jews goal was "World Domination." All this was deduced from the infamous "Protocols of the Elders of Zion." Fry was involved in various fascist organizations of the 1930's and founded the nationalists and isolationist Christian Free Press. Waters Flowing Eastward attempted to prove that the protocols were part of a plot to destroy all of Christian civilization. She compiled an elaborate chart detailing the claimed Jewish master plan and linked it to earlier organizations including the Illuminate and leading to the League of Nations. Preface: "It has been frequently observed that our civilization follows the course of the sun westward: from Greece to Rome, from Scandinavia and Germany to England, France and Spain, from Europe to America. It looks towards the west for fresh lands where it may build nobler cities and create more perfect forms of life, unhampered by the trammels of the past. It may be said that the west stands for independence of thought, free expression, and representative government: these principles are involved in the western conception of progress. Beneath this great westward flow of our civilization, there are undercurrents moving eastward. These are impelled by a spirit which looks back to the east, to the days of tyrant and slave, of luxury and misery, and incidentally the suppression of western culture. This spirit is retrogressive, though often calling itself "Progress", and its ways are devious. But the currents for which it is responsible are broad, deep and violent in their effect. The following pages are designed to cast light on these eastern undercurrents which have undermined western states. Political problems which most governments prefer to ignore have been commented upon in detail. Special attention has been given to a struggle going on underground and which is perhaps of greater significance than the so-called perils to western civilization, such as the Yellow Peril or the Black peril, where every move is watched and understood not only by the rulers in each nation, but also by the governed themselves as a whole. In brief, an attempt has been made to place in broad relief the inner structure of a system which has produced and still foments not only racial enmity, but also has even undermined certain civilizations and overthrown established national governments."
