I have always liked Taylor Caldwell and cant understand why her books have gone out of print. This was one book I never got around to reading and it is quite difficult to come by. What an eye opener!! Although it is not the main focus of the story the parts that deal about globalization by an elite extremely wealthy group of men are incredible. In view of all that is happening in this day and age this book has put a lot of things in perspective for me, and gave me a lot to think about. I can not recommend this book highly enough. I have actually gone and bought several copies to give to friends to read. Why it has not been reprinted is beyond me.
