Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE----------------CAPABLE OF HONOR by Allen Drury.
At first glance one might look at this tale of a bitterly divided political convention centered around America's Cold War commitment in a Third World country, and the ensuing violence as a conservative's reaction to the 1968 Democratic Convention. But what makes this novel so remarkable is that it was written nearly two years before the spectacle of Chicago in 1968. Drury's blatant political conservatism has often caused his works to be sadly overlooked for their prescience and insights into American society given the prevailing bias of critics, but "Capable Of Honor", like the rest of the "Advise And Consent" series is a masterpiece of political novels.
