About this Item

Red cloth with paper title labels on front cover and spine. Spine label very faded (basically illegible): that on cover still quite good. Spine very faded, fraying at top (appears to have been reglued) and bottom, and with a 1 1/2" by 2" damp spot at base of spine. Both hinges weakening - back threatening to give. Large yellow journalism headlines motif on end papers. 452 pp., bibliography and index. At least two pages with some writing and one of these with indelible (?) pencil. Author's Note: "This book is an effort to trace the evolution of violence in the class struggle in the United States from the unorganized, spasmodic riots in the eighteen-thirties on the part of the ill-treated laborers to the highly organized criminal terrorism, or 'racketeering,' of today." From the Molly Maguires to "Recent Tendencies in the Class War (1920-1930). 19 photographic illustrations. The tone is set by the quote given at the beginning of Part One: "I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half." - Jay Gould Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days via the United States Postal Service.

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
