Chicago: Reilly & Lee Co,, 1919. Emerson Hough (1857-1923), who mainly wrote westerns, authored this glowing history of the APL, a quasi-official organization whose mission was to identify suspected German sympathisers during World War One. This was really just an excuse to go after leftists and anarchists; they wished to enforce patriotism by deporting "un-Americans" and "purifying the population." Many would later find a home in the KKK. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition, lacking the dustjacket. Tan cloth binding with black lettering. Clean text; 511 pages, with appendices. Light soil, very mild shelfwear and bumping. An interesting book regarding a shameful part of our past that has, unfortunately, repeated itself too many times. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.

Price = 45.00 USD
