State Of Fear

By Crichton, Michael

New York: Harpercollins, 2004. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/good.

No great friend of environmentalists, the author attempts to convince his readers of his argument that scientific study of the environment is, inter alia, too intertwined with politics through this fast moving story, a very extensive bibliography and extensive footnotes. Weight 0.95 Kg. . Postage within Malaysia is free The dust jacket has some bumping at the edges and a small tear at the rear. The book itself is in almost fine condition although the page edges at the side appear to have been cut unevenly.
