Product description

The Great Challenge - Louis Fischer (1947) - vintage political book - WW2 and after
 
Louis Fischer, "The Great Challenge" (London, Jonathan Cape, 1947). Vintage hardback political book (black cloth boards, gilt title to spine) with original dustwrapper, 358pp, measuring approximately 15.2 x 22.7 x 3.4cm (6 x 8.95 x 1.35in). By the author of "The Soviets in World Affairs" and "Men and Politics", this is described as "a book about the politics of the war [World War 2] and the peace as well as an authoritative study of the men who shaped and are shaping world affairs. ... Fischer surveys the course of events from the beginning of the war to the beginning of the peace. ... Analysis and discussion of Russia's role in the world form the core of Louis Fischer's book."
 
The dustjacket is much discoloured and marked (especially to the spine) with age wear including scratches and indentations to the surface, a crease along the spine, and bumping, creasing and slight tearing to the edges (it is not price-clipped as such but has a small piece clipped from both corners of each flap); the cover has some fading / discoloration and marking together with some age wear including bumping to the edges and corners and faint creasing along the spine, whilst the inside front cover bears a previous owner's inscription in blue ink; the pages are discoloured with tanning / browning to the edges, some pencil annotations and other marks together with age wear including some edge wear and corner creasing (mainly to the lower edges which are irregularly cut), whilst the binding is slightly weak in places.
