From the rear panel: "Fredy Boettcher is no visionary. He embodies reaction, the humane sort most people have when brought up against the horror which visions and causes may bring. In World War I Turkey, the sight of women being burned alive by a mob causes him to lose his sense of touch, as if he was burned himself. He must conceal and try to use this curse-gift over much of his subsequent life, which involves travels around the world, including to Hollywood, Arabia and Hitler's Germany. Deliberately cast in non-literary language, Les Murray's profound study of moral shock teases out the potential for peace, still not fully realised, which lie in multiculture and mixed heritage." Contents include: Book I, II, III, IV and V. Afterword. Book weight approx. 375g. *Postage charge will be reduced as this item will post under 500g. packed weight. . Second Edition. Softcover.
