Condition: Very Good — in Good Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper a little rubbed at the edges, somewhat faded and spotted. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned. Leans. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “He reported the end of the British Empire and the creation of Israel, the Korean war and other conflicts, the east-west confrontation in Europe and Asia, Kennedy’s 1,000 days, the Cuban missile crisis, and the events which almost destroyed American society. Heren’s reports and books have won him many prizes, including the first John F. Kennedy Memorial Award, because he was no less interested in Indian peasants, Israeli kibbutzniks, the Bedouin and other nomads, guerrillas, black activists, soldiers and ordinary people.”
