THE LORDS OF DISCIPLINE.
Edition: First printing.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1980. dj. Hardcover first edition - Conroy's fourth book, third novel and one of his best novels - set in a military school in Charleston in 1966 (based on The Citadel, of course, which Conroy attended.) The first black cadet has just been admitted. 499 pp. Long blurb from James Dickey on the back cover of the first state dustjacket. ISBN: 0-395-294622.
Condition: Very good in a good only dust jacket. (slight spine slant, the rather fragile dustjacket has some short tears, now protected by an archival cover. Original price of 12.95 still present on flap.)
