The Coming Victory of Democracy is a book published in 1938 by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. It contains the abbreviated text of a lecture series delivered by Thomas Mann from February to May of that year, all across the United States. Mann's intent was to rally support in America for fighting the Nazi regime in Germany. In the text, the German expatriate author explains his moral, political, and artistic reasons for desiring (and predicting) the victory of democracy over the fascism of his own native country.
