Dystopia. A remarkably accurate picture of a future fascist society in Berlin. The society is completely authoritarian, completely racist, and completely sexist. There is a tremendous emphasis on eugenics. Berlin is completely underground, and there is a constant war with free democracies outside. One emphasis in the work is the status of women, who are primarily used for breeding. In the end Berlin is defeated.
