A Near Fine first printing of the first edition in Very Good dust-jacket with scratches to front, signed by author James Michener on page opposite half-title page.
Major Norman Sharr, attached to the National Security Council, is told that he will shortly be called before a congressional committee. Through a tense, reflective weekend, the officer talks over the situation with his wife and a street-wise Washington lawyer - and begins to think back to the long line of Americans from whom he is descended (from the dust-jacket).
