The multi-million-copy bestseller that coined the phrase for tragic American blunders abroad.

Robert Trumbell

The attack on American Policy in Asia this book makes is clothed in sharp characterizations, frequently humorous incident and perceptive descriptions of the countries and people where the action occurs. As a piece of literature, The Ugly American may fall into a permanent niche as a source of insight into the actual, day-by-day by-play of the present titanic struggle for Asia that will engage future historians - unless, of course, the communists win, and supress all such books.
