Book Description Harvester Wheatsheaf, Great Britain, 1990. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Hardback. First Edition. Very slightly sunned spine to D/J. The publication of this book brings together the finest of Johnson's recent writings. It is introduced by a major new essay, 'The Individual in Politics', a theme which links the thirty-two essays in the book. Four sections - on Politicians, Intellectuals, Spies and South Africa - present the many women and men, the 'heroes and the villains', who myriad individual political choices make up the world's complex political spectrum. We meet subjects as varied as Winnie Mandela, Jacques Doriot, Mrs. Thatcher, J. Edgar Hoover, Paul Johnson, and Ramond Williams. Johnson conveys his message - that individuals in politics really do count - in deceptive simple language containing sophisticated political observations. This book is probably the richest compendium of instruction, amusement and arguement to appear since Orwell's Collected Essays. 347 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hadrback. Bookseller Inventory # 075439
