Babson, Roger W.  
Our Campaign for the Presidency in 1940: America and the Churches
 Picture
Publisher: National Prohibitionist, 1941 Chicago, IL.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall Roger W. Babson, a prominent investor and businessman, was the Prohibition Party candidate for President in 1940. "Roger Babson is in many respects the most colorful of the four candidates named. His business and professional career have kept him before the country for more than forty years. Mr. Babson is a Christian statesman. He has served his own church in its highest executive office and has stood unflinchingly not only for National Prohibition, but in support of every other great moral issue. Though his is the candidate of a minor party, by test of character, experience and ability he stands shoulder high with President Roosevelt, Wendell Willkie and Norman Thomas.. Yes, these four candidates make it impossible for any qualified voter in the United States to remain away from the polls in November without becoming a slacker worthy of contempt. Even though your vote goes to the man who receives the smallest total of all the votes cast, it is a victorious ballot, for it ele3cts your own sovereign convictions; it puts you into the ballot box. It registers for democracy. It records itself and will be recorded for the Constitution of the United States, for the Bill of Rights, for the American way of life." The Prohibition Party ran its first candidate for President in 1872 and has run a candidate every four years since, including 1012. 254 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition with only minor wear; binding tight; text pages clean and white. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; complete but with some soiling and edgewear.

AMERICA THE ALMIGHTY; The Maverick Hyperpower
 Picture
Publisher: Bookman Publishing MD 2004.
1st printing. A blistering indictment of our current foreign policy by a retired US State Department careerist. From the book: "The United States stands out at the beginning of the 21st century, with the Cold War more than a decade behind us, not only for its extraordinary power among nations, but also for its extraordinary resistance to international cooperation and international law. Our American values and traditions call us to a higher and more benign use of our power. The U.S. has a tremendous responsibility and opportunity to work for the creation of a better world - one in which global peace and stability rely increasingly on military brute force, economic clout, and win-lose games. When we invest in a more law-abiding, orderly world, gradually our own security as well as that of other countries is enhanced. When we undermine such a world and reinforce international anarchy, our own security is undermined, regardless of the 'protection' of our raw, coercive power."

de Seife, Rodolphe J. A. (ed)  
George C. Wallace: Triumph or Tragedy?
 Picture
Publisher: Timely Publications, Inc., 1972 Arlington, VA.
Book. Book condition: Good. Soft cover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall This booklet was published shortly after George Wallace, a Presidential candidate in 1964, 1968 and 1972, was shot in an assassination attempt. it's unsafe for candidates for public office, it's a sad day in this country, I tell you.' George c. Wallace uttered the above words after his detractors had made police intervention necessary to restore order and permit him to continue his address. American political life took on a sombre mood with the death of John F. Kennedy in 1963, Malcolm X in 1965, and Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. We have moved forward from the violent decade of th 60's, but the pall of senseless violence has been cast over another presidential campaign. Indeed, many thoughtful Americans have concluded, with sorrow and despair, that such senseless violence is now a permanent part of the 'American way of life.' Sensible men need not be reminded that if our political institutions are to survive and democracy to continue, this specter of violence must be eliminated. We grieve not only for George C. Wallace, but for our own United States of America as well. This is a tragic hour both for Governor Wallace and all of us who, as does he, cherish the freedoms and democratic processes which have, once again, been so hideously assaulted." Wallace's political history is told in photographs and words. Not paginated. Book is in GOOD condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.

The Eve of Election: Facts and Hints for Voters New and Old
 Picture
Publisher: The Macmillan Company, 1918 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "..In preparing his volume the writer has been inspired by a desire to be helpful to new and old voters alike, but especially to such of the enfranchised citizens of the gentler sex as may feel inclined to examine its pages. The one authority he claims as a political adviser or chronicler is that which he has derived from his prolonged researches and, what is perhaps of more practical account, his editorial service and observations covering more than thirty-five years. He has studied political activities and phenomena at close range, with an occasional intrusion behind the scenes for a still nearer glance. What he witnessed and learned gave him an insight into old political methods and abuses; and some of these he recalls for their instructive and monitory value, though he feels that little need be said of his personal experiences as a looker-on. One who ventures to discuss seriously national, State and municipal politics for the information and guidance of the uninitiated must perforce draw upon history liberally for his object lessons and his illuminants, and set fort the results in convenient and compact form. A classic sage has said that 'history is philosophy teaching by example.' Politics, rightly viewed, is a branch of philosophy and the man or woman is best equipped to use for public benefit the political power that goes with the franchise who has gained enlightening knowledge of American democracy in the eventful stages of its evolution - ot its errors and reactions as well as its achievements and glories. But the author, while surveying this broader field, has not neglected to follow the political by-paths with which the average voter, new and old, is more familiar, and to tell something of his discoveries and the theories he has evolved from them. In so doing he has endeavored to close his eyes and thoughts to existing party politics in it s controversial or contentious aspects. It is his especial hope that by his earnestness, at least, he will be able to emphasize, to good purpose, the moral and civic influence of every ballot rightly cast and of the opportunity the polling booth opens to the humblest citizen." Howe offers a fascinating, first-hand look at the American political system of almost 100 years ago. 283 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

He also analyzes every aspect of the life of the city and of the people who live there-- from Roosevelt and the White House, Hull and the State Department, Jesse Jones and the RFC, Donald Nelson and the war-production set-up, down to the flood of war workers who make Washington one of the biggest boom towns in history, to the women who give it social lustre, to the huge Negro population that makes it the most important Negro city in the world."

Klemon, Jay [pseud. of Harry Jonesburg], 1944- .  
Cry.

Publisher: Dayton, Ohio, Les Livres, 1992.
xviii, 171 p., index. “This book unveils a provocative view of the U.S. government, a rare attempt at retelling the U.S. democracy’s facts. Clearly, it is a journey into uncharted waters. It will leave most if not all readers shocked and profoundly moved. Few books have been written with such simplicity and directness, revealing facts that will startle every American." (from the cover). F. Twin, on the Amazon website, writes in a review: "Harry Jonesburg's holistic view of [American] society provides tools much needed to manage one's life in an increasingly complex world. While searching for other books or articles that he might have written I came across Jay Klemon's books and learned that Jay Klemon is a pseudonym under which Harry Jonesburg addresses the same holistic issues but on more specific subjects in a Socratic dialogue conducted in a fictional setting. In "Cry" he addresses the specifics of government and especially the US government. In "One-Footer" he focuses on genetic engineering and the ethics of modifying the human genetically. Even though both novels were written over ten years ago, it is fascinating how well they shed light on today's problems of stem cell research or electing a president." Stock#20887. Vg/ wrappers.
