Content:

Two seamen from Germany stranded on the shores of an unknown island. They find a civilazation that is far further advanced than anything they know and they live in a very different society that's not unlinke communism.

Taking into account the time when this was written, it is an extraordinary book every science fiction fan should have read. Unfortunately I don't think there is an english translation ...

I actually recommend comparative reading with the novel "Atlantis" by Hans Dominik ...
