DJ has a few tiny tears to edges, else fine; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "Each step into the morass of Vietnam seemed reasonable and necessary at the time; each step was followed by another slightly longer which sank slightly deeper into the quicksand. The 800 Americans of 1960 had grown to an army of 400, 000 in 1966--the border skirmish to the fourth largest war in United States history.. The Bitter Heritage is more than a vivid account of a tragic war: it uses the insights of history to make a powerful statement of the perils which which the indefinite enlargement of this war would bring to American democracy and world peace."

Patterson, James T.  
Mr. Republican: A Biography of Robert A. Taft

Publisher: Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1972..
3rd ptg. 23½ X 16 cm. VG/VG. Grey cloth, gilt-on-black titles with gilt decorations on front board & spine, frontis., xvi, 749 pp, 8 ff b & w photo plates, 14 editorial cartoons, notes, bibliography, index. Slight wear to extremities, top edge spotted with what appears to be a spattering of coffee. DJ spine faded but legible, extremities rubbed, two small tears (both under 1 cm); in Brodart archival cover. After a brief examination of his childhood & early career, the bulk of this book concentrates on Taft's years as senator from Ohio from 1939 until his untimely death from cancer in 1953, when he finally was majority leader under a Republican president. Taft was son of President and Chief Justice William Howard Taft and a conservative Republican whose name is most frequently mentioned as co-sponsor of the Taft-Hartley Act. From the DJ: "Taft affirmed individual freedom, equality of opportunity, and the rule of law. He fought hard against the spread of federal bureaucracy, high government spending, and Big Labor. But he was also flexible, and he pained Republican conservatives by battling for public housing and federal aid for education." Shipping weight 3 lbs.

Handlin, Oscar (Ill. Samuel H. Bryant)  
The Americans: A New History of the People of the United States

Publisher: Boston: The Atlantic Monthly Press - Little, Brown and Company, 1963..
First Edition. 22 X 15 cm. VG/VG-. Light brown cloth with publisher's device blind-stamped on front board, top edge dyed red, xii, 434 pp, 28 b&w drawings (one at the head of each chapter), index. Spine ends turned in, slight edge wear, a few small spots on edges of boards, corners of a few leaves creased, owner's stamp on title page. DJ somewhat soiled and rubbed, with a 4 cm snag at rear joint; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "The Americans traces broad themes -- the evolution of free political, economic and social institutions, the changes in basic ideas and assumptions, and the pressures upon spiritual and familial forms -- without losing sight of the mass of men and women who shared the American experience. Its approach enables this work to escape excessive emphasis upon a few great men and upon the traditional succession of political and military events." Based on both primary and secondary sources, but without the usual scholarly apparatus of extensive notes. Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 8 oz.)
