FROM THE PUBLISHER - In March 1983, in an act that shocked people everywhere and resulted in front-page headlines around the world, Arthur and Cynthia Koestler committed double suicide in their house on Montpelier Square in London. It was understandable why Mr. Koestler had taken his life—he suffered from two increasingly painful and debilitating illnesses—but Mrs. Koestler was twenty-two years younger and in perfect health. This haunting, poignant book explains why she chose to end her life as well. Like the earlier volumes of Koestler’s autobiography, ARROW IN THE BLUE and THE INVISIBLE WRITING, STRANGER ON THE SQUARE is one of those rare books that does not contain a single dull word. It is the enthralling record of the social and intellectual life of one of the most extraordinary figures of the twentieth century—a man who combined in a unique way the life of action, the life of the mind and the deep and rich enjoyment of other people. In one sense this book differs completely from anything else Koestler wrote, for it was written jointly, in alternate chapters, by himself and his wife Cynthia. In 1949, after answering an advertisement, Cynthia Jefferies went to work as a temporary secretary to Arthur Koestler, and continued to do so on and off for the next six years in France, England and the United States. There is little doubt that she fell in love with Koestler almost at their first meeting, and in 1955, in response to a telegram from him, she left her job in New York to go work for him permanently From that reunion until their deaths, their lives were shared. In 1965 they were married. STRANGER ON THE SQUARE is unfinished, covering only the years from 1940 to 1956. The manuscript was found among Koestler’s papers after their deaths, It was not then in publishable form, and some of the material has subsequently been rearranged and edited, but nothing essential has been eliminated, Cynthia Koestler’s chapters of the book are frank about her life with Arthur, his love affairs, his demanding nature, his temper, his depressive moods and his occasional manic activity. Koestler himself never tried to hide his faults, and Cynthia related them in a matter-of-fact way, rarely with any comment except a kind of rueful sympathy for him. The result is a fascinating insight into a great writer and thinker at work. Arthur Koestler’s own contributions contain much new material, including his account of his stormy life in France after the war, and his relations with Camus, Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. Arthur and Cynthia Koestler lived together for another twenty-seven years after Stranger on the Square ends, The reader of this joint autobiography will understand why the devoted wife thought that her life had come to an end when Koestler decided to end his. HAROLD HARRIS, former literary editor of the London Evening Standard and editorial director of Hutchinson, was Koestler’s editor and close friend for many years, and is his literary executor. .

From the outset, U.S. officials on the scene expressed concern that the rebel, or Constitutionalist, forces responsible for the uprising contained radical elements. This assessment prompted President Lyndon B. Johnson to order U.S. Marine and Army units into the country to protect American lives, restore order, and, most important, prevent a Communist seizure of power. The Leathernecks were the first to land as part of a plan to evacuate U.S. citizens. With the expansion of the marines' mission to include the establishment and defense of a neutral security zone in the city, and with the arrival of combat units from the 82d Airborne Division, U.S. involvement in the Dominican crisis became a military intervention, the first undertaken by Washington in Latin America in thirty years.At the height of the intervention, nearly 24,000 U.S. troops were committed to the joint and, ultimately, combined operation. Preparing and deploying these forces to the Dominican Republic required strategic guidance, joint planning and coordination, clear lines of command and control, timely communications, and current and accurate intelligence. Deficiencies in each of these areas plagued the operation from the beginning and, under different circumstances, could have made its successful execution a much more costly affair in terms of Dominican and American lives. That the U.S. military fulfilled the missions assigned to it in the Dominican Republic owed much to luck; to the absence of a well-organized, heavily armed, and highly disciplined opposition; and to the flexibility, innovation, and adaptability demonstrated by U.S. officers and enlisted men, who had to adjust their initial expectations to the realities of the situation.For U.S. soldiers in the Dominican Republic, actual combat occupied only a small portion of their time. Once it became apparent that the intervention of the marines and paratroopers precluded a rebel victory, U.S. forces became engaged in a variety of civic action, PSYWAR, civil affairs, and other noncombat activities, the principal purposes of which were to restore stability, "win hearts and minds," and provide the foundation for a negotiated settlement. The decision to seek a diplomatic solution to the crisis meant that Washington deliberately subordinated military requirements to political considerations. For the combat soldier, the most visible manifestation of this decision was an avalanche of rules of engagement, many of which placed severe restrictions on U.S. military behavior in the Dominican Republic.One month after U.S. soldiers entered the country, they were integrated into the Inter-American Peace Force (IAPF), composed of men from six Latin American countries. Once negotiations resulted in the establishment of a provisional government, the IAPF assumed responsibility for protecting that government from right-wing and left-wing attempts to overthrow it. Elections were held in 1966, after which the foreign troops remaining in the country as a part of the intervention departed. The Johnson administration, despite domestic and international criticism of U.S. behavior in the crisis, regarded the intervention a success because order had been restored, the electoral process resuscitated, and a Communist takeover averted., GPO, 1988, Paperback.
