What the author wanted with this title, which derives from the fact that he alternated between green- and orange-covered notebooks during its composition, was a framework that allowed him to think and write freely without making concessions to political overtones of an ethnically-biased Irish nature, and somehow he has succeeded, even at this comparatively late stage in his literary vocation, in both correcting a fairly long-standing philosophic error of logic in his thought and extending his philosophy to embrace an entirely new perspective which he believes to be of seminal importance in both understanding and defining contemporary civilization as an extension of Western civilization, whether or not one relates to it or has any ancestral connections with its development.

About the Author
John O'Loughlin is a London-based author who was born in Ireland of an English mother of mixed Irish descent and grew up first in Hampshire and then in Surrey, where he attended a variety of state schools. Most of his adult life has been spent at different addresses in the London Borough of Haringey, north of the River Thames, to which he moved from Surrey in 1974, and all but a few of his books have been written there, the majority of which, like this one, are of an intensely philosophical not to say metaphysical and even ideological nature
