First edition of the author's first work of fiction and fourth book. Published in the United States as ON THE INSTRUCTIONS OF MY GOVERNMENT. A novel of US politics. Santa Clara may be one of the least important of the Latin American Republics, but when a left-wing takeover coincides with a Presidential election in the United States is assumes a new and dangerous significance. Then the fact of Chinese involvement becomes clear, and an embarrassing crisis escalates violently to the very threshold of nuclear war. For forty-eight hours the world is on the brink of ultimate disaster. With chilling skill and the expertise that comes from profound personal knowledge, Pierre Salinger describes the collapse of a government in a ground-swell of frustrated discontent: the impotence of honest men battling in a morass of inertia and expediency: a White House paralysed by the awful threat of the public opinion polls; an American Ambassador torn between conflicting loyalties and tortured by a love of which he is only half aware. The world of high politics has never been described with greater authority nor the material used to create a story of sharper suspense or more alarming authority. A fascinating read.
