DJ browning at extremities, front flap creased; in Brodart archival cover. White describes his approach to writing the history of the 1968 Presidential election: "..history can be approached as journeyman reporters generally do: as a study of men making up their minds, prisoners of their information, captives of events, forced to decision when scissored by clash, acting either clumsily or gracefully when hit by the unexpected. This . approach does not make for neat truths or cunning analysis. But that is the way history appears, as it happens, to those who must report its junction points." Shipping weight 3 lbs.

DJ browning at extremities, front flap creased; in Brodart archival cover. From the Prologue: "Rarely had two candidates given Americans sharper choices. There was no doubt that the American people had grown suspicious about all governmental power--suspicious of what that power could do, or undo, in their home cities; suspicious of its dictates to their communities in race relations; suspicious of its conscription of their sons to fight abroad; suspicious of its control over their purse and tax burdens. In this sense, Richard Nixon convinced the Americans, by more than three to two, that he could use power better than George McGovern--and how that came about is the story of this book."

Soft cover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Jenkins was President of the National Patrick Henry Organization, a radical right-wing racist and anti-semitic political group of the 1950s. She believed that God's people should be protected from such things as "race-mixing", integration, and "Judeo lies". "God's will be done - Father Noah separating the black children of the curse - Gen. 9:24-25 - approximately 2341 B.C., to prevent violation of God's immutable law: Keeping the HOLY Creation seed separated from the unholy, sin-cursed or corrupt, and 'Everything after its kind, ' which neither SOCIAL Science nor democratic 'social order' and 'equality' can explain away. As proof of God's indignation over the 'intermixing' of the children of the perverse Cush (Canaan), they were all ordered to be destroyed and their homeland taken. Is it cruel to destroy wickedness, as a deterrent? Why not teach God's TRUTHS instead of these Judeo lies?.." 40 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; some soiling. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.

According to the DJ, this volume "shows Stevenson vigorously criss-crossing the country after accepting his party's draft, eloquently speaking out on such issues as foreign policy and trade, civil rights, the atom bomb, Communism and Communist-hunters, the economy and fiscal responsibility, and Indochina. The volume also covers the years immediately succeeding his defeat, when resuming the same grueling schedule, he fought strongly and successfully to rebuild the Domcratic party and elect a Democratic Congress in 1954, all the while devoting his best efforts to combating drift and complacency in the federal government and to playing the characteristic role of 'the conscience in politics.' .. witty, pungent, sharp, free of pomposity.."
