Foreword: "Suddenly, traffic halts. Autos, airplanes, trains and ships freeze, powerless. Lights fail. New York, London, cities and towns everywhere are blacked out. Emergency calls are impossible, for all communications telephones, telegraphs, radios—are Cut dead. Industry and manufacturing cease. Whole nations are blacked out, frozen, helpless. Imaginary, of course—but a true picture of what would occur today if electric power were suddenly cut off."
