German sociologist and author whose 1943 book World in Trance was praised by Winston Churchill but criticised by H. G. Wells, who called Schwarzschild "superficially intelligent and massively stupid", and Michael Foot, who denounced it as "a facile, scintillating treatise which... has received applause from those weary brains which prefer the dismal past to the adventurous future". A. J. P. Taylor called the book a "brilliant argument in favour of firmness".

Leopold Schwarzschild died on 2 October 1950, aged 58, in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy.
