A 1983 reprint of the 1905 classic. A chilling examination of terrorism, this book is the literary forerunner of the espionage thriller.

Do you think terrorism began in the 20th century? You'd be wrong! As revolutions and counterrevolutions washed over Europe in the 19th Century, anarchists gnawed at the fringes of the fabric of society. Think something like this could never happen to you? Read how a mediocre man gets sucked into whirlpool of politcal intrigue at tragic lost to his friends, family and himself.

One of Conrad's greatest novels.
