Washington, DC, U.S.A.: Counterpoint Press, 1999. Washington: Counterpoint, 1999. First edition. Hardcover binding. The New York Times Book Review : "As the authors of this brilliant history point out, the Great Game was a dry run for the cold war, avoiding outright conflict but marked by the same search for influence and the same displays of bravery and cussedness, though whether the story of the cold war will ever seem as exciting as this, I doubt. Tournament of Shadows is much more than a magesterial work of scholarship: it is an absorbing inquiry into men and motives that is one part le Carre, one part Indiana Jones. . . . New in new dustjacket, protected with an archival-quality mylar cover. . First Edition. Hard Cover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
