400 g; XII, 236 pages, last page blank. Illustrated dust jacket. Ownership inscription on front endpage, darkening of the edges of the text block. Price clipping of the dust jacket. Otherwise in very good order. How, the novel asks, is a systematic abuse of a population by its political overlords made possible and what kind of individual believes this abuse to be justifiable? Such questions are answered not through caricature or satire, but through depiction of characters of immense charm, cultivated and seemingly gentle souls, among whom hide, however, individuals prepared to commit deeds frightening almost beyond imagination. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7�" - 9�" tall.
