Book Description: S.i., Richmond, VA, 1972. Greatly expanded edition of Cox's 1938 racist pamphlet, which argued for strict separation of the races and concluded that the repatriation of American blacks to Africa was the only practical solution to racial conflict. Cox (d. 1966) reputedly continued to revise and expand the book until his death. The original pamphlet has been reprinted numerous times, but this edition, published entirely without imprint, is apparently the only one to fully include all of Cox's later revisions (as it is longer than its closer rival by some 100 pages). Also includes the text of a draft of H.R. 5250, written by Rep. Robert Nix (PA), calling for Federal assistance for African-Americans wishing to emigrate to their African countries of origin. Octavo.
