THE FLOATING REVOLUTION

Reliable reportage with the popular touch and punch, this commemorates the Santa Maria episode so recently in the headlines. The tale is divided along three flanks: the problems Galvao and his band meet in trying to persuade the world that they are not pirates but political insurgents, the growing tensions amongst the passengers and the work of the US Navy in tracking the ship down. Author Rogers' portraits of all concerned are sharp and suggestive, the events well-paced and the scenes vivid. A timely item seen in not-so-distant retrospect.
