Summary
"Please note that this is not 'The Official Boy Scout Handbook'. It is a collection of my essays and reviews and bagatelles on appearances, institutions, and society, writers, travel, and war written over the past fifteen years or so, and written on very different occasions and for different purposes."--Preface
