Hardcover with dust jacket in good condition for its age. Fading to spine and spots on page edges visible when closed.

First published 1954. This edition 1956.

The scene is a Pacific Island - British New Brabant. The part of it with which we are concerned is the Sultanate of Namua. Adviser to the Sultan and Commissioner for Tribal Territory is James Morland.

The British colony at Namua cannot approve of the Sultan. Though charmed, they are also embarrassed by him: they never know what predicament he will put them in next.

In the highlands of Namua an insurrection is threatened. The Sultan assumes control of the operations against it. As imperturbable as ever, he takes the action of which James Morland must disapprove. But he sees to it that Morland gets all the credit.

Eric Linklater's story is surprising to the last - as continuously as it is entertaining. The Sultan is outstanding among the striking figures he has created.
