"The story revolves around a case of scientific fraud. Charged with this, a young scientist has been dismissed from his academic post; and now, with the revelation that Donald Howard may be innocent, the Affair makes a moral and political crises which splits the college from top to bottom. The case is re-opened, with Lewis Eliot in the crucial role of advocate for Howard. As the tension mounts over the Affair, C.P. Snow pins down the issues; he writes a study in justice. His novel is particularly rich in personalities, and it has a strong vein of comedy, in the person and activity of M. L. Gay, the ninety-six-year-old Islandic scholar who shakes the college in his own startling way."; 7" - 9" Tall
