Len Deighton says: âA very powerful book indeed. For the first time, to my knowledge, it truthfully reveals the innermost workings of the huge corporations and conglomerates which dcminate our lifeâthe businesses which buy and sell factories, shuffle unions, lay-off workers, pollute our world. It has everythingâsuspense, excitement, industrial espionage and a host of fascinating characters, the typical cargo of any transatlantic jet-liner. No one knows their secrets better than Derek Jewell who, in this brilliant novel, bares tycoon hearts to the bone.â

THE WORLD OF DUKE ELLINGTON
by Stanley Dance
A fascinating composite portrait of a genius in 20th century music and an authentic record of American jazz over several eras.
Stanley Dance has interviewed the Duke as well as the great figures in the Ellington gallery-Johnny Hodges, Barney Bigard, Harry Carney, Ben Webster, and Sonny Greer, to name a few. They talk about the Duke, their own careers, and other musicians, giving a panorama of the jazz world.
âThis book is absorbing, one of the most interesting I ever read about the Duke and all those who have been necessary to him over the years. I found it stimulating reading.ââBENNY GOODMAN
Stanley Dance is a contributor to Saturday Review, Down Beat and Jazz Journal, and he became a personal friend of the Duke when they met during the first Ellington European tour.
Illustrated with over 30 photographs. Discography, chronology and index.
