Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries

HUMAN EVENTS asked a panel of 15 conservative scholars and public policy leaders to help us compile a list of the Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Each panelist nominated a number of titles and then voted on a ballot including all books nominated. A title received a score of 10 points for being listed No. 1 by one of our panelists, 9 points for being listed No. 2, etc. Appropriately, The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, earned the highest aggregate score and the No. 1 listing.

  1. The Communist Manifesto; Karl Marx and Freidrich Engels, 1848 (Anm.: Der Mann heisst "Friedrich Engels, nicht Freidrich)
  2. Mein Kampf; Adolf Hitler, 1925-26
  3. Quotations from Chairman Mao; Mao Zedong, 1966
  4. The Kinsey Report; Alfred Kinsey, 1948
  5. Democracy and Education; John Dewey, 1916

  7. The Feminine Mystique; Betty Friedan, 1963
  8. The Course of Positive Philosophy; Auguste Comte, 1830-1842
  9. Beyond Good and Evil; Freidrich Nietzsche, 1886 (Anm.: Auch Nieztsche hiess Friedricht und nicht Freidrich)
