281pp. First paperback ed. Fine. China born, later U.S. Ambassador to Singapore as well as previous service as U. S. Counsel General in Hong Kong. Also, a decade at University of Washington (Seattle). Education included Bachelors at Carleton College and Masters from Yale. W/post-it note in and SIGNED by "Charles" and w/lengthy inscription and SIGNED by author (twice!) on t.p. What makes this copy unusual is the enclosure of roughly 50,000 words the publisher requested be removed prior to printing (length, it seems, not content) (per post-it SIGNED in same handwriting) together w/two tls on author's stationery (and one from the book's owner to Cross). All three (book, deleted text, and letters) with generous underlining. (5611256655)
