In Sladek, Black's version being the first to be published in English, we see how social conditions lead people to desperate action and violence, opening the road for dictators and fascists. Written just as the Nazis came to power, A Sexual Congress predicts with frightening accuracy the cycle of violence that was to spread throughout Europe.
