Hardback. An engrossing study of one man's fight for survival against a background of political manoeuvring at the highest international level. Aldo Moro, Italy's leading statesman, was kidnapped by the Red Brigade on March 16, 1978. On May 9 he was shot and his body delivered almost to the doorstep of his own Christian Democrat party headquarters in Rome. During the 54 days of his detention in the 'people's prison' the Italian Government refused to consider any form of negotiation for his release. The author, lived in Rome, and witnessed at close quarters how political development and the massed forces of the media combined to make Moro's death inevitable. He chronicles the deliberate annihilation of a man and the ruthless division of every shade of opinion to fit a popular concept of noble hawks and treacherous doves.
