256 pages. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 221. In his masterful work, a small group of research scientists led by a public-relations man defeat an entire army of highly trained sophisticated, intelligent Pan-Asians. From a cave in the wilderness, they meet urban technology with ingenuity, craftiness, and succeed with American know-how.

Bound in black cloth centrally stamped in red depicting an atom, spine lettering red, rubbing to upper board, and bottom edges, very light toning to page edges, in unclipped pictorial dust jacket lettered in black showing wear to edges, spine ends and corners with chipping, in all, a very good copy.
