Summary A World War I novel on civilized and uncivilized warfare. The protagonist is a British psychologist, treating soldiers for shell shock. Before the war he lived in a British colony in the Far East, studying headhunters until the practice was banned by the British as uncivilized. Now, as he witnesses the carnage of civilized artillery and machine guns he asks himself why is this not banned? By the author of The Eye in the Door.
