Harry Dexter White — A Study in Paradox - David Rees

Macmillan, 1974, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, heavier at the spine and tips, and notable scuffing to both panels with staining to the reverse. The front flap has attached itself to the top corner of the board. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Pages lightly age-tanned. Top corner of the first blank clipped.

From the cover: “DID HARRY DEXTER WHITE’S impressive record of public service as Assistant Secretary of the United States Treasury and co-creator of the International Monetary Fund mask disloyal activities? In this probing examination of an important career, David Rees explores the significant and little-known case of a man who was, paradoxically, both a patriot and a ‘security risk’ — a case that involved not only Presidents Truman and Eisenhower, but the young Richard Nixon as well.
