[nice clean copy, very light wear at ends of spine; jacket shows some faint soiling, one small tear at bottom edge of front panel, tiny chip at top of spine and another at bottom front hinge]. A typical bit of farcical whimsy from this author, a spoof of international affairs about a not-(then)-too-distant future (1968) in which Britain, in the interests of maintaining world peace, is asked by the United States to grant independence to her last two colonies, Omo Lau and Omo Levi,"two little islands in the South Pacific, their cannibal past all but forgotten, happily drowsing in the trade winds, happily dependent." One of the islands, duly liberated, reverts to "the tabu-ridden ways of its ancestors"; then the American Vice-President is dispatched for a goodwill tour of the islands. (This of course being the pre-Dick Cheney days, when American Vice-Presidents were still good for a laugh instead of a shudder.)
