Clark Gifford is a disaffected politician in a nameless, media-driven modern state where representative politics has dwindled to the corrupt transaction of business as usual, and a foreign war is always breaking out on the horizon.

Even so, it leads to twenty years of war

Crime novels : American noir of the 1930s and 40s( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This adventurous volume, with its companion devoted to the 1950s, presents a rich vein of modern American writing too often neglected in mainstream literary histories. Evolving out of the terse and violent hardboiled style of the pulp magazines, noir fiction expanded over the decades into a varied and innovative body of writing. Tapping deep roots in the American literary imagination, the novels in this volume explore themes of crime, guilt, deception, obsessive passion, murder, and the disintegrating psyche. With visionary and often subversive force they create a dark and violent mythology out of the most commonplace elements of modern life. The raw power of their vernacular style has profoundly influenced contemporary American culture and writing. Far from formulaic, they are ambitious works which bend the rules of genre fiction to their often experimental purposes"--Jacket
