Mild wear to book and jacket, no tears or marks. 268 pages with Select Bibliography and Index. Eighty-two black and white plates comprise two sections of the book to illustrate the text. From Library Journal: "In this compelling investigative study, Knightley and Kennedy (not JFK's daughter) reexamine the scandal that rocked the British government in 1963 and present persuasive new evidence to clear the name of Stephen Ward. Ward, a "society osteopath" involved in espionage activities, committed suicide following his implication in the sex scandal. This book not only brings the entire affair back to life, but places it within the context of critical East-West political maneuverings. It is based on Ward's own tapes and writings, on more than 80 interviews, and on some previously-classified FBI documents. Fast-paced yet solidly researched."
