This scrupulously revised edition offers a comprehensive introduction to the beauty and wonder of the Catskill mountain region. Combining a wealth of information with abundant illustrations, the book falls into four main sections. The first section deals principally with the geography of the area. Part Two focuses on the region's history, with subsections on Railroad Fever, The Romantic Era, War and Revolution, and Famous Hotels. Part Three- devoted to the Catskill's legends, literature, and art-features descriptive passages from the work of such famous writers as James Fenimore Cooper and Washington Irving. The final section is an extensive gazetteer that provides succint descriptions of the mountains, ranges, rivers, brooks, kills, creeks, and other geographical features of the region.

From the Back Cover:

The first edition of The Common Sense Politics described itself as a "just in time tonic for those of us who have given up common sense as well as on politics, and can no longer see the connection between the two". One only has to peruse the pages of this 1996 edition to recognize that this book is just as appropriate and important for us now. With the development of a European Community: the upcoming American presidential election, and in light of the recent celebration of the U.N.'s anniversary, it is crucial that we, as citizens of the world, approach politics with common sense and a universal desire to improve our institutions toward managing and administering to a greater mankind. This book, built upon universal principles of a politics of common sense and for the purpose of restoring faith in the reform and improvement of our institutions, is the way towards a more perfect society.
