Author: Francis Bennett
Francis Bennett¿s brilliant fictional sequence of novels tracing the history of the Cold War started with MAKING ENEMIES, set in the deadly days of the race for the hydrogen bomb in the late 1940s, and continued with SECRET KINGDOM, which anatomised the run-up to the Hungarian Revolution. Now, in DOCTOR BERLIN, we are in 1961 at yet another time of crisis as the great powers squabble over that symbol of a divided Europe, Berlin. As in his previous books, Francis Bennett shows us how lies and deception have shaped the recent history of our continent, how a relatively small number of deeply cynical men and women have affected the lives of millions ¿ and how, if a few idealists had been listened to ¿ it all might have been very different. Nobody has written so penetratingly or so fascinatingly of the great tectonic shifts of the past fifty years since John le Carré.
Well Read - We do our best to ensure the quality of our books, but there is no escaping the wear and tear that comes with time. Pages might be yellowing or largely annotated, with some foxing on the exterior of the book. This is a well-read book, but this also means that the previous owner probably really enjoyed it! This category also includes books that are heavily annotated but are otherwise in a clean condition without brown spots.
