A fine and entertaining book that shows that political corruption and incompetence are nothing new at all. At the time I finished the book about 373 other LibraryThing readers had read the book, but I'm the only one who read this dilapidated old paperback edition from 1961--don't use my entry as an indication of popularity. As I understand it, this book was tremendously popular in its day--1880 publication. The cover on my book says that "Gladstone, the English Prime Minister, advised everyone one to read it." The cover also reports, ""The public, with appetite whetted by the secrecy surrounding its authorship and the highly inflammable nature of its subject matter clamored so vividly for copies that countless unauthorized editions were published on both sides of the Atlantic. This wholesale piracy, Adams declared, was the single real triumph of his life." ( )
