    This endless tome was the #3 bestseller in 1962. This review is the second installment of the 1962 reading challenge I set for myself in August. (For background on why 1962, see My Big Fat Reading Project: keepthewisdom/200) Finishing the novel also marked the completion of my list of Top Ten Bestsellers for that year. I read Drury's first novel, Advise and Consent, a couple years ago. That one was the #1 bestseller of 1960 and also won the Pulitzer Prize. In any case, I knew what I was getting [...]

    Not quite as good as book one, but still an excellent read. It's interesting to read these books that were written in the 50's and 60's, during the cold war, desegregation, assassination, etc. They're written with kind of a "what if" viewpoint, but I'm reading them a good 50 years later, knowing full well what that "what if" turned into. Fascinating!

    Read this whole series back in the 60's. Loved them then. Drury is the writer who got me started on political thrillers!

    This book is not so much reviewed as it is discussed in my blog post "Too much Allen Drury": librarianslauderdale.wordpres21st century readers who have heard of "Advise and Consent" the book or "Advise & Consent" the movie may not also know that "Advise and Consent" is the first in a series of six books that Drury wrote over a span of sixteen years. I really wasn’t planning on reading more than that first book until I read about the premise of 1962’s "A Shade of Difference" on

    Allen Drury takes his unique style from the Senate to another flawed but necessary institution, the United Nations General Assembly. Orrin Knox, a featured Senator from Advise and Consent has been promoted by the new President to Secretary of State. Many of the other players from Advise and Consent are also here in featured and side roles.This is a big book, but it’s also a big topic: race relations in the United States, in the world, and the growth of freedom in both spheres. Drury doesn’t [...]

    It's quite a book! This book is a political fiction novel based on actual historical events. It takes place in the 1960's when segregation was just being implemented in the schools. A good deal of the story takes place in the assembly of the United Nations in New York and in the senate in Washington DC. You feel like you are there in an assembly of the United Nations with U.S. senators, congressmen, majority leaders, newspaper men, and representatives and ambassadors of other countries. You hear [...]

    In this first sequel to Allen Drury's Classic "Advise and Consent", the author delves into racial politics as understood in the early 60s. I was intrigued to find out how it would be depicted by Drury, whose hostility to left of center elites is obvious in all of his books. The story brings a collision between two burning issues of the day, African de-colonization and integration in the United States, when a tribal leader from an emerging nation in Africa barges into a school integration standof [...]

    This is the second novel in a four novel series written by political reporter Allen Drury. I've read the opening act ("Terrible Terry's book") and it seems quite similar in style to Drury's earlier work, "Advise and Consent."The critique of Drury's writing is that he is slow and methodical in his approach to the plot, leading to a slow and methodical approach by this reader.Each plot point is met not by the subsequent action, but by paragraphs and pages of response from each of his main characte [...]

    I remember reading both these books not long after they were published (I was a 9th-grader in '62) but I'm not certain that at least one was in a Reader's Digest Condensed version; in any case I had a lot more patience for long, long books back then. It's fun revisiting some of the books you have in your project although I probably won't reread -- my reading time is growing short (although I keep believing I have 20 years left!) Of course, I also enjoy reading about the books you read that I hav [...]

    It's been more than 25 years since I read this book, but I've been wanting to re-read it and now I shall. It was the sequel to Advise and Consent, Drury's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
