Description:
Tokyo, Japan: East-West, 1949. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. The first in a series of six photographic books by American photojournalist Horace Bristol (1908-97), which he described as "a tourist's book about Bali, photographed with one eye on the calendar, the other on the camera ground-glass. It is no more thorough than can be expected of a five-week visit, spent driving frantically around the island in a hired station wagon, hoping to capture the significance of a mysterious, baffling country in a matter of days." Bristol is perhaps best known for documenting migrant farmers in California's Central Valley with John Steinbeck, photographs that would later be called the Grapes of Wrath collection. Signed by Bristol on the front flyleaf. Square octavo. Original decorative cloth binding, with a paper title label inset on the front. The dust jacket is trifle edgeworn, with some very mild sun fading along the spine and a period bookseller's label to the rear flap; otherwise very good.… Read more

Description:
Simon and Schuster, 1988. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. New York First edition. Based on probing interviews with key players of involved countries (including Argentina), this is an amply documented indictment of Reagan administration policy toward Nicaragua, which the author calls "a case study in the perils of fighting strategic battles in secret, on the cheap, and by proxy." Inscribed on the front flyleaf by Gutman to U.S. Ambassador Philip C. Habib, who is mentioned several times in this work. A renowned career diplomat, Habib (1920-92) was an authority on Southeast Asia, President Ronald Reagan's personal representative to the Middle East, and a special envoy to some of the world's most dangerous flash points. In 1982, Habib was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. Some uneven sunning to the dust jacket; otherwise a very good copy. Inscribed by Author.
