Another fascinating science fiction book by Poul Anderson. Dominic Flandry Agent of Imperial Terra His duty, as offically defined: to seek out threats to Pax Terrestria and to neutralise them - or failing that to call His Majesty's Military Forces, who will end them in a more drastic and final way. As defined by Dominic Flandry: to stick his finger in the dike of civilisation, to hold off for his lifetime the inevitable coming of the barbarians and the Long Night. To this end he battles , murders remorselessly, betrays outrageously. His justification? "Suppose young women clad in sunlight, blooded horses stamping on the plains of Ilion, smoke curling about fragrant about coffee and connac on Terra" - in a phrase all the joys and pleasures that taken together comprise human civilization.
