While the dust jacket refers to this book as controversial, I don't think the publisher realized how controversial it would be: as the result of lawsuits, it was suppressed and pulled from shelves and only finally reissued, in a somewhat revised form, in 1991. Three maps, notes, index. xli, 628 pp. ISBN: 0-670-397024.
