Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, USA: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1956. Red/White pictorial printer wrapper. Volume has wear on the edges, rubbing. Now in protective wrap. From the Foreword: "What happened at Harper's Ferry? This book does not answer that question; it is designed rather to provide you with the best means possible of answering it yourself - the facts. Presented here is a selection of contemporaneous accounts and opinion so widely varied in its coverage that a casual reader's initial reaction may well be one of bewilderment to the sharp disparities between the accounts. No attempt is made here to synthesize or interpret these primary sources; that is up to you. This very conflict and diversity of reactions to John Brown's raid are the substance of its undiminished fascination; this abortive, ill-fated act of a handful of men touched off a controversy whose blaze illumined a cleavage of passion and principle that was soon to find its resolution in a bloody Civil War." .

NO remainder marks or clippings. Since the end of World War II, the primary political regions of Illinois, Chicago and "downstate," have lost population, wealth, and political power to a third region, the suburban collar, which has relentlessly expanded outward from Chicago. At the same time, legislative service has changed from a largely part-time "citizen" activity into a "professional," career-oriented pursuit. Parochial perspectives of elected officials have intensified as reflected in candidates' promises to deliver their districts' "fair share" of government spending. The state legislature has become an arena in which each region battles for its own fair share, rather than an instrument for comprehensively addressing the state's problems. The authors foresee the emergence of political coalitions linking downstate and Chicago-historically at odds-in efforts to protect their "shares" and contend with the suburban collar. Illinois's political leaders face the challenge of looking beyond district interests to the broader concerns of work-force quality and statewide economic prosperity. Samuel K. Gove is Director Emeritus at the Institute of Government and Public Affairs, and Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Illinois. He is coeditor with Louis H. Masotti of After Daley: Chicago Politics in Transition. James D. Nowlan is an adjunct professor of public policy at Knox College and a Senior Fellow with the University of Illinois Institute of Government and Public Affairs. He is the author of A New Game Plan for Illinois. . Trade Paperback. Near-Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Univ of Nebraska Pr, 1996, TX: SMU Press. Very Good in Near Fine dust jacket. 1982.

Does the President or the Congress have the authority to commit the resources of the United States - its people and its materiel - to the declaration and conduct of military action abroad? The Thomases have provided an analytical treatise which is a major contribution in the field, writes Charles O. Galvin in his Foreword. ., SMU Press, 1982
