5.0 out of 5 stars Nicholas Monsarrat at his best 14 July 2002
Format:Paperback
I read this book about 5 years ago but it's still sits quite well implanted in my memory. The author is at his best when he starts to dig into the motivations of each of the characters and he is evidently no fan of the media. The book is quite tragic in and the outcome seems pre-ordained from the beginning but it makes for a fascinating and gripping read to see how the wheels fall off.
Perhaps most striking of all when you finish the book is to look at the year it was written and then examine the history of some of the former colonies which received their independence in the past fifty years.

I chose this title for our book club here in Ontinyent,Valencia, Spain, as I remember Nocholas Monserratt as a great storyteller from my youth. So far It has proved popular with those eho havwe read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 14 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book was way ahead of its time. Long before Allende was being brought down, right when Diem was being raised up, Monsarrat was writing about how nations get destabilized. It doesn't take much: a couple of well-timed rumors, a few outrages, and before you know it, you've got a nation going down the tubes. At some point you begin to realize that the destablization and violence have taken on a life of their own, and that the only sensible option is to get out until they've run their course.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tribe Who Lost Its Head 3 Mar 2012
By vladin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the best books about the end of the colonial era, the law of unintended consequences and the media duplicity. The style is crisp, the humor is dry and the political corectness is out the window. Not the kind of book which would easily find a publisher in this day and age.

4.0 out of 5 stars The tribe that lst is head 13 Feb 2013
By MAL THATCHER - Published on Amazon.com

I read this book years ago in the late 50s when I was at school. It was considered to be a dirty book then. Now i found it to be an interesting commentary on our colonial days which i remember fondly.
