About this Item

First Ed; First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Fine DJ: Book shows only barely discernible spine lean; the binding remains perfectly secure; text clean. DJ is flawless; price unclipped; mylar-protected. Virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 202pp. Hardback with DJ. Anthony Daniels is a very funny writer in some of the very saddest places on earth. All right, perhaps he is biased, but he is biased the way a psychiatrist is supposed to be---he's biased toward the pursuit of happiness. The most tragic moment is in Romania, where two engineers tell him privately, "We are dead already," referring to the nature of their meaningless lives. What struck me most about this book was the numbing similarities between the plight of the people in the stricken lands visited by the author. Tyranny is evidently not a very original or creative form of government, and must resort the same horrors wherever it appears around the world. A very insightful and entertaining book. Read it.
