LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Michael Joseph, publishers, London - first edition UK ISBN:0718124324, 1984. hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Thirty-seven b&w illustrations, reference, and index. Pulitzer-Prize winning Barbara Tuchman explores one of our compelling historical paradoxes - the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interests (often self-destructive acts carried out despite the availability of a feasible alternatives). A magnificemt work of history - outstanding in its scope, strength, originality, and vision. Troy, the Protestant Secession, Britain's American colonies, the domino theory in Vietnam - fundamental government follies all!
