Hardback book "A Pound Of Saffron" by M K Joseph.

First Edition published 1962 by Victor Gollancz & Paul's Book Arcade Ltd NZ.

Good condition. Age Spots.

"Mr Joseph writes about life in a NZ University at the present time.

The novel is in large part a study of James Rankin, a cold blooded careerist, a NZ scholar on his way up and out of NZ into the well paid world of international learning - a fat job in UNESCO is his goal.

His machinations are in part effective, because that wisdom which Maltravers hoped for is in short supply in this University; because personal enmities, the distaste for Jews and of others for Catholics influences the judgement of University teachers more than reason or principle, and because the smell of McCarthyism is still strong; because the age is indeed wide open to the manipulator."
