A surprizing book by a very mainstream novelist. America has been starkly divided between a group of plutocrats, and a largely disenfranchised majority. Our hero has to rally the forces of the populace to regain a useful form of democracy. But, it has not clung very well to my memory. Read full review

A long time since read. Interesting that there are several other books written by others using this title as well as a film based on Morris West's book. Written in 1950s with a futuristic perspective of what American and world totalitarianism and socialism would look like and how it is overthrown. Read full review
