9780395665138: The Triumph: A Novel of Modern Diplomacy

First published in 1968, this satirical tale of political rebellion and U.S. intervention in a small Latin American country is as timely today as it was 25 years ago. This anniversary edition includes a Foreword by the author that considers "what it's like to be right too soon." "As delightful to read as it is disturbing to think about. . . ."--Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.
