Fair. Binding is intact but a little loose. Book may or may not be missing dust jacket. Light wear to dust jacket. Slight scuffing or chipping to cover or spine, otherwise like new. Spine shows moderate wear. All proceeds from purchases from BooksKC go to benefit the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City, a nonprofit organization which provides job services, training, and employment to individuals with disabilities.
Acceptable. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (However the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text. Book may be a price cutter or have a remainder mark.
This book is a well written autobiography of an interesting man who followed his political beliefs no matter the cost. The quotations from the Alger Hiss trial are particularly revealing and history as been on the side of Whittaker Chambers.

The true story in a well written page turner. One of my all time favorites!
