Years into the future, a class of intellectuals is concerned only with running boys' boarding schools and playing the Glass Bead Game, which involves a sophisticated synthesis of arts, science and culture in order to excel. Hesse's novel was published in Switzerland because German government officials considered it a critique of the Nazi regime.
