This book was written by the same authors of the huge bestsellers Is Paris Burning and Or I'll Dress You In Mourning. They are historical and biographical novelists that write with a gripping and compelling style. This books's subject is the ultimate terrorist threat and the possible apocalyptic consequences of nuclear technology. This proof was published in 1980, long before the terrorist events that we are all now familiar with. Looking back, the book almost seems prophetic. This volume is an uncorrected proof copy. This means that it was published before the first edition. Proofs serve the purpose of allowing the author and the publisher to make any changes or corrections before the final publishing of the first edition. They are produced in very small printings. They are always more rare than the first edition and this one is in very nice condition. There is some slight toning to the book and the original publishers sheet sent to reviewers is attached to the inside front cover very neatly. There is a touch of bumping to the spine which appears to be from the publisher as well as a touch of very, very, light soiling. A really nice proof of an important novel. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
