FIRST EDITION: Black cloth covered book with red titles on the spine. The cover is in very good condition. The dust jacket has tears on the lower back and at the spine, it is also creased at both the upper and lower edges. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. Published in 1964 by Anthony Blond the description is "Imagine a country taken over by teenagers. The oldies have "done it": with Easiway pills, they have yielded to the universal weariness and quietly died. The dustbins begin to overflow: the power stations, the presses, broadcasting, public services and Government itself stop. Free to smash, loot, and love as they like, the gangs roar, on their brand-new expendable motor-bikes, through the littered streets. By now, the currency is baked beans, lipstick and petrol. They begin to run out. Shortage leads to warfare."
