Just a Sample . . .

Scepter Publishers have given Google books permission to publish a sample of Supremacy and Survival on line. You will be able to read the introduction, view some of the tables and glossaries I've prepared, pages in some chapters, a few illustrations, and the first page of the list of recommended reading and of the index. Just enough to whet your appetite, I hope.

Reminds me a little of a scene in Show Boat, the Kern and Hammerstein musical: Cap'n Andy tells Frank and Ellie to give the audience "jest a sample of the dance" (Cap'n Andy's Ballyhoo). Parthy Ann, his wife and Magnolia's mother, complains that he'll give the show away for free! He knows it's a way to tantalize the audience and get them to buy a ticket to see the show on the Show Boat!
The sample pages in Google books give you an idea of the contents and style of Supremacy and Survival, but as it's still held in copyright, doesn't give you the whole book for free. Tantalizing.
Remember you can also get a sample of what Supremacy and Survival is all about today at 1:00 p.m. Central time on EWTN Radio as I appear on "The Good Fight" with Barbara McGuigan and Richard "Doc" Geraghty.
