Mile High was the eighth book by the American satirist and political novelist Richard Condon , first published by Dial Press in Internationally famous at the time of its publication, primarily because of his Manchurian Candidate , Condon had begun to lose the respect of critics with the publication of his last few books and the one-time, so-called Condon Cult was mostly a thing of the past. Like his fifth book, An Infinity of Mirrors , Mile High is a consciously ambitious work, primarily concerned with the establishment of Prohibition in the United States, and Condon researched it thoroughly. The first two-thirds of the book, in fact, reads as much like a lively history of New York City gangsterism from the midth century through as it does a novel. Mile High is a three-generational story, beginning with Paddy West, a penniless, totally amoral immigrant from Ireland who through shrewdness and brutality makes himself into the most powerful political boss in New York City; with Paddy's death in as a Tammany Hall leader, his even shrewder and more brutal son, Edward Courance West, becomes the center of the story, as, at age 20, he conceives, full-blown, a scheme for imposing Prohibition on the United States—purely as a means of making himself an unsurpassed fortune; and finally, in , with Eddie West now the richest man in the world, but also criminally insane, the story shifts to his second son, Walter, a non-criminal architect, and his beautiful new black wife—a woman that the murderous racist Eddie West intends to torture and kill.

May 6 didn't look like a day to break records. There were gale-force winds and squally showers, and Roger Bannister's attempt to run a mile in under four minutes seemed certain to be called off. He went through the motions none the less, sharpening his spikes in the hospital lab where he was training as a doctor, then catching the train from Paddington to Oxford. The crowd at the Iffley Road cinder track was modest - only 1, or so, though 20, or more would later claim to have been there. Fifteen minutes before the race, the wind was still gusting. But then the clouds lifted, a rainbow appeared, the St George's flag on the nearby church tower fell slack, and Bannister decided to go for it.
The latter definition, though new to most modern readers, will perhaps not be surprising to many.
