About the Book

The Lords of Discipline

THE LORDS OF DISCIPLINE is a novel about coming of age, brotherhood, betrayal and a man’s forging of his own personal code of honor.

Will McLean, a senior on the cadets’ honor court, is an outsider by nature: a basketball star at a school that prizes military prowess above athletics, a military man in training who dares to question the escalating Vietnam war. And yet his greatest struggle will be with the corrupt institution of which he is a part.

Rich in humor and suspense, abounding in a rare honesty and generosity of feeling, this novel established Pat Conroy as one of the strongest fictional voices in a generation.
