Then a lucrative offer to hire his services is dangled in front of him. The sensible thing to do would be to sail away across the Pacific. However, Nick wasn't being sensible when he walked into the Marine recruiting office. he isn't being sensible when a quixotic impulsesweeps him into a small but deadly corner of the war against the drug-runn ers that infest the Bahamas, in the unlikely copmany of a foul-mouthed ex-American football player and a smooth-talking US presidential candidate. Caught up in a world that denies every truth he believes in, the only defence is to draw on the despised skills of his father's world and fight violence with reckless courage." - from the dj.

CRESCENZO, Luciano de. Thus Skape Bellavista : Naples, Love and Liberty. Translated from the Italian by Avril Baronbi. (London) : Picador, published by Pan Books, (1988). First English-language Printing. Pp. (8),[ix]-xiv,[1]-205,(5). 8vo, red cloth with silver lettering to spine. Dust jacket illustration by Ralph Steadman. Originally published in Italian in 1977. "In his home on the slopes of Sant' Antonio, the Professor holds court... Salvatore,employed as assistant deputy porter at No. 58, Via Petrarca, and Saverio, who elevates unemployment to the status of fine art, drink the sparkling Gragnano wine and listen... Dottor Palluiotto, a convert to the chrome-platedphilosophies of his adopted Milano, takes issue in impassioned dispute... The Professor remains unmoved. Milan is the north and the north is different. Bellavista's discourses on love and liberty are warmed by the good red wine and the sunlight of the south. He sees the world and all its ways through the glass of the wisdoms of the streets of Naples. And outside, Neapolitan life goes on... the most complex of strategems admit thousands to the football match without a ticket... a businessman of regular habits rises in the middle of the nigth to discover the man who sleeps in his car... and complex negotiations aboard a bus reveal how tall a small passenger needs to be before he must buy a ticket to ride... The chapters of 'Thus Spake Bellavista' alternate between philosophy told as anecdote and anecdotes with all the resonance of philosophy. Here is a fiction to serve Naples as generously as Aragon's 'Paris Peasant' served the City of Light -- the work of a writer who promises more than any other to inherit the mantle of the late Italo Calvino." - from the dustjacket.

Pp (8),ix-[x],1-473,(5),+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Lester Pearson - Canada's 14th prime minis­ter, and foremost diplomat - was aman of deep and passionate convictions. His vision of Canada as a force fo r international peace, mediation, and good will helped redefine our view ofourselves. But how did this seem­ingly mild and easy-going man develop suc h a powerful and unswerving vision - and how did he win the political cloutto put his beliefs into practice? In this formidable and fascinating first vol­ume, John English casts new light on the pri­vate and public life of t his remarkable Cana­dian. He takes us back to Pearson's child­hood, to the "model child" of a devout Meth­odist family and the boy who, at 18, left his father's parsonage to be a stretcher-bearer in the First World War. Pearson was shattered by his wartime experiences, and had difficulty settling down on his return. He stu­died law, worked as a sausage-stuffer, won an Oxford scholarship, and came home to be a history professor and football coach.In 1928, still unsettled, he joined the foreign service. As the world agai n drifted towards war, Pearson was posted to London, and on to Washington. Through those difficult years, as Canada struggled to maintain indepen­dence while supporting the massive war effort, his intelligence, perception, and unpretentious charm won respect and atten­tion, not only for himself but for the country he represented. On the surface easy and accessible, Lester Pearson was in fact a man of contradictions. To explore his depths, to showhow Pearson's development reflected that of the country (the book is also a marvellous por­trait of Canada in the first 50 years of this cen­tury), and to examine his impact on Canada from the perspective of the 80s, John English has studied newly available documents and has interviewed Pearson's colleagues and family at length." (from the dj of Vol. 1). "His life changedthat of his nation." In this absorbing bioeraphv.. John English illuminate s the years of Lester Pearson's greatest eminence, and vividly, revealinglyexplores his life and times. His period as prime minister was to prove one of the most decisive in our history, and his policies helped shape contemp orary Canada. Charming, unpretentious, visionary, Canada's foremost international statesman, the Lester Pearson who emerges from the account of these momentous years - from the Korean War, through the tumultuous sixties to his death in 1972 - is a complex, paradoxical figure. A man uneasy with ambition, who shunned the flamboyance of his arch-nvai Diefenbaker, Pearson nevertheless competed for the most glittering prize in Canadian poliucal life. World recognition brought him the Nobel Peace Prize, yet in his battle to maintain independence for his country he deliberately incurred the wrath of its powerful traditional allies, particularly Lyndon Johnson whom he heartily disliked. He was oddly unprepared personally to take on Canada's highestpolitical office, and led the Liberal Party to the worst defeat in its his tory, yet he went on to sponsor astonishing, far-reaching changes in Canadian society - bilingualism, biculturalism, medicare, modern Canadian nationalsim and co-operative federalism were all innovations of the Pearson years.And while he has been called our greatest prime minister, others see him a s the leader of a government that created many of Canada's discontents, andcrises and scandals swirled about him. Most paradoxically of all perhaps, this unassuming man became a national icon, winning a lasting place in the hearts and minds of a whole generation of Canadians. In this second volume of his award-winning biography, John English has had ible access to Pearson's personal and political papers, drawing on the letters and diaries and private papers of a host of his contemporaries, and on personal interviews with his family and friends, rivals and foes alike. The result is compellingly readabJe - a richly detailed portrait of Canada and of a remarkable Canadian whose impact on this coiountry was immense." (from the dj of Vol. 2).
