Buckley, William F. Jr.; L. Brent Bozell.  
McCarthy and His Enemies: The Record and Its Meaning.

Publisher: Chicago: Henry Regnery Co., 1954..
First Edition Octavo in beige cloth stamped in black. 413 pages SIGNED BY BOTH AUTHORS AND INSCRIBED BY BUCKLEY TO GEORGE MORGANSTERN "WITH BEST WISHES AND ADMIRATION." While there are certainly several persons with that name, it seems a reasonable assumption that the one Buckley would have admired would have been the vehemently anti-New Deal editorial writer of the Chicago Tribune. This is Buckley's second book, written with his brother-in-law, and it examines the conduct of McCarthy and his critics at the peak of the conflict he engendered, and finds both objectionable with the latter holding a decided edge. A clean, bright, and sound copy with minimal bottom corner bumps. The jacket has an inconsequential chip at the top rear panel of perhaps 1.5 square inches, light edge wear with minimal loss of material to the top of the spine, and minor general rubbing. Hardcover Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good Dustjacket

Critchley, Julian : Halcrow, Morrison:  
Collapse of Stout Party : The Decline and Fall of the Tories

Publisher: London, Victor Gollancz, 1997.
288pp with b/w illus. "In (this book) Julian Critchley - long admired as one of the wittiest and most acerbic observers of the party to serve as an MP for thirty-one years - joins forces with political writer and commentator Morrison Halcrow to provide a chronicle of the decline and fall of the Conservatives. That collapse was set inexorably in motion when an ousted and tearful Margaret Thatcher climbed into her car outside 10 Downing Street in November 1990. John Major may have led the Tories to an unlikely victory in the 1992 election, but Black Wednesday was not long in coming, followed by a succession of scandals, accusations of sleaze, voter disillusionment and polls which depicted the party in a flat spin. The campaign of 1997 was a last ditch attempt to keep the party afloat." This book would probably appeal to those politicos wishing to see how Michael Howard - the present Tory party leader - ducked and dived and swung his allegiances in the 1997 leadership challenge.
