Description: Toronto, McClelland & Stewart. 1964, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 312 pp, 9 1/2" H. Map endpapers, b&w photographs. "Shocking, tragic, almost unbelievable, is this account of the strange sect and its fanatic leaders who have defied the laws of Canada for over fifty years. (Uses) the records of the RCMP, the courts, and the government, (and) also the statements of the Doukhobors themselves to complete this history of the sect from its origin in Russia to the present day. It is a story of fanatical terrorism let loose in the name of religious freedom; of a Mafia-like organization growing more sophisticated in its criminal activities with each passing year - an organization which has killed twenty-three Canadians, destroyed almost twenty million dollars' worth of property, and warped the lives of successive generations of Doukhobor children." Very light browning to edges of text block, very small bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds; toning to flap-folds, hinges and edges; several very small edge tears and chips; light rubbing; a few tiny scuffs on spine; crease down rear flap; now protected in a mylar sleeve. Very Good/Good-.
