1 ATWOOD, Margaret. Handmaid's Tale. First Edition in dustjacket.
McClelland and Stewart, Toronto, 1985, ISBN:0771008139 
ATWOOD, Margaret. The Handmaid's Tale. (Toronto) : McClelland and Stewart, (1985). First Canadian Edition. Pp. (12),13-324,(4). 8vo, beige cloth boards, maroon spine, beige lettering to spine. Spadoni and Donnelly 3587. "'TheHandmaid's Tale' is a radical departure for Margaret Atwood. Set in the ne ar future, in a locale that oddly resembles Cambridge, Massachusetts, it describes the life in what was once the United States. Now, however, it has become the Republic of Gilead, a monolithic theocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans, and has gone far beyond them. This regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for women, and for men as well. The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate 'Handmaids' under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment's calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions." - from the dustjacket. Gift inscription inked opposite title page, light nicking and faint ridge-wear to spine, else a very good copy in unclipped dustjacket. 250.00

November 8, 1932, Philadelphia. "To Chet Kinsman, space held the promise of peace and beauty that Earth denied him -- yet it was Kinsman who stained the purity of space with murder. His atonement shaped his life and the destiny of his planet -- and drew him inexorably to use, and finally betray, those closest to him. Preceding the widely acclaimed 'Millennium' in the author's gripping chronicle of the next quarter century, 'Kinsman' shows the eventful, expanding space program from today's space shuttle to the first permanent moon base, through the eyes ofits dedicated -- and driven -- hero. Drawn from today's and tomorrow's headlines, it is a vivid picture of what the future will mean in human terms." - from the introductory preamble. Nick to head of front outer hinge, else very good.

A volume in the Writers of the 21st Century series. "The beautifully crafter, emotion-laden stories of Ray Bradburyhave touched the hearts and minds of millions of people all over the world . 'The Martian Chronicles' are among hte most widely read and admired science fiction stories of all time. His classic novel 'Fahrenheit 451', which Donald Watt in this book calls 'the only major symbolic dystopia of our time,' is a brilliant treatment of totalitarianism and those who struggle against it. Despite -- or perhaps because of -- the surface simplicity of his major works, Ray Bradbury has seldom been studies. This book attempts to place Bradbury in perspective both as a writer and in terms of his place in thehistory of science fiction. The latter point is an important one because B radbury is not considered a 'science fiction writer' by many of his contemporaries and critics. More often than not, he has been misunderstood, especially in regard to his attitudes toward science and progress. He has been castigated as a 'social reactionary', a middle American still living in a world that has long since passed." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. two views by Willis E. McNelly and A.

This Critical Companion examines, in a Literary Heritage chapter, the situation of Bradbury's works within the science fiction genre and explores thematic concerns that set works like 'Fahrenheit 451' and 'Dandelion Wine' apart from conventional popular SF writings. This introduction to Bradbury, written especially for students, traces Bradury's [sic] interesting life, examining his early literary efforts, his forays into HOllywood, and his recent writing projects." -from the rear cover.

"This study attempts to provide a phenomenological account of the reader's responseto fantasy and science-fiction literature written by the American fantasis t, Ray Bradbury (b. 1920). Why phenomenological? And why Bradbury? For a number of interrelated reasons. First of all, because when we respond to the aesthetic experience of fantasy or science fiction, we are reacting to a concrete vibrant world which we have in fact helped to create. [...Secondly...] since fantasy and science fiction are narrative arts, the tendency amongtheorists has been, understandibly to be primarily concerned with the vari ous forms that plots may take in these genres. But as far as the reading process itself is concerned, narrative and th resources of form only satisfy one particular cluster of related desires. [...] A third reason for a phenomenological approach is one that ofr the moment can only be presented negatively: reverie is both core and method in the fantasy of Ray Bradbury, but it has not been studied." - from the introduction, pp. [xi]-xiii.

BURBANK, Jane. Intelligentsia and Revolution : Russian Views of Bolshevism,1917-1922. New York and Oxford : Oxford University Press, 1986. First Prin ting. Pp. (4),[v]-viii,(2),3-340,(4). 8vo, maroon cloth with gilt letteringto spine. "From the Bolshevik victory in 1917 to the consolidation of powe r five years later, the Russian revolution inspired a brilliant outburst oftheory and criticism among Russian intellectuals who struggled to comprehe nd their country's dramatic social upheaval. Faced with the collapse of themonarchy and disintegration of life as it had been, Marxists, monarchists, anarchists, populists, liberals, and nationalists alike contributed to a g rowing collection of critical and speculative thought. The October coup rekindled issues that had concerned the intelligentsia in the past -- issues that are still hotly debated today. Why had the revolution happened in Russia? Was this socialism? What did Bolshevik power mean for Russia and the Western world? How would the values of the Russian people be affected? In 'Intelligentsia and Revolution', Jane Burbank recovers these early responses tothe revolution, offering a multi-faceted image of the revolution seen from within. She surveys the vast body of unknown or forgotten polemical litera ture inspired by the Bolshevik takeover in 1917 and the ensuing social, political, and economic turmoil. From Kropotkin, the voice of Russian anarchism, to Ustrialov, a xenophobic nationalist, Burbank follows the disparate theories of these intellectuals, tracing their commitments and dilemmas through the turbulent years of civil war, and for many, into the Russian emigration. Her insightful analysis reveals how the revolution revitalized the political culture of the intelligentsia and, at the same time, exposed the fragile basis of its existence. An informative study of the Russian intelligentsia in its classic role as social critic and articulator of national ideals, 'Intelligentsia and Revolution' paints an important group portrait. it skillfully depicts a broad range of perspectives on the revolution during a crucial period when both action and inaction counted and when the tactical and institutional choices made by the intelligentsia were critical for the future." - from the dustjacket.

Westview Press, Boulder, Colorado, 1977, ISBN:0521393272 
FREEDMAN, Lawrence. U.S. Intelligence and the Soviet Strategic Threat. Boulder, Colorado : Westview Press, (1977). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xv,(1),[1]-235,(5). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine, top edge stained black. "In recent years there has been a lively debate in the US over the quality of intelligence estimates on Soviet strategic forces, and on therole that these estimates play in the formulation of US strategic arms pol icy. This book discusses some of the main issues in this debate, examining in detail the performance of the US intelligence community as it attempted to monitor and predict the development of Soviet forces from the early daysof the cold war to the last days of the Ford Administration. Most of the m ajor intelligence debates of the period are covered, including the 'bomber gap' and 'missile gap' debates of the 1950s, and those over Soviet ABMs andMIRVs of the 1960s and 1970s. The book begins with an institutional histor y of the US intelligence community. This explains the process by which intelligence estimates have been produced and how the changing character of this process has affected both the content and the influence of the resulting estimates. A major point of the book is that in determining the nature of the Soviet 'threat' arguments concerning US vulnerabilities are as important, if not more so, than arguments concerning intelligence estimates of Soviet forces.
