Summary (From the publisher):

ONLY HUMANITY'S TWO-FISTED DIPLOMAT CAN SAVE US NOW!

"...into the chaotic Galactic political scene, the CDT emerged to carry forward the ancient diplomatic tradition... Corps diplomats displayed an encyclopedic grasp of the nuances of Extra-Terrestrial mores as st against the labyrinthine socio-politico-economic Galactic context..."
- Official History of the Corps Diplomatique, AD 2940.
NOT! What they really had was Retief! Ignore the official version - in these pages is the real story of how Retief tied the bad guys' eye-stalks in knots, and made the Galaxy safe for humanity.
