The dust jacket is rubbed, with minor chipping, and splitting at the fold over creases. This is the author's first book, and interestingly I could not find it referenced in the Encyclopaedia of science fiction, or fantasy. Invent a pill, which when taken, cause a whitening of the skin. Now watch the bigots react, devising so-called "true colour charts" that can identify a Negro, whatever his apparent colour. -- sounds like various programmes in history that could identify people of certain religions, ethnicity, or sexuality.
