Richer that all his tribe - MONSARRAT, Nicholas

Cassell, 1968, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ, with some very slight fraying. Laminate weakening on DJ but internally bright and clean.

Mr Monsarrat traces the story of an island''s development; it is devastating in its portrayal of the evolution of an emergent African nation. His portrait of Dinamaula, first Prime Minister and later President of the Republic, is a highly perceptive if cuttingly sardonic study of a man of high principles betrayed by the delights of power, his idealism swamped in the flood of credit offered by every great nation, his ambitions for his people''s welfare diverted to his gaudy joys of materialism. 369pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")
