Description:

First edition (not stated per publisher's usual practice). xiv, 150 pages. Hardcover; H 22.25cm x L 14.5cm. Black dust jacket well rubbed, shallow chipping at spine ends, nicks and short tears at panel edges, closed 3.5cm tear and creasing at front panel's top edge, scuffing lengthwise along front flap fold; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Dull red cloth with black spine lettering. Foxing to top and bottom edges; short stray ink mark near top of fore-edge. Interior pages are clean and binding remains fairly crisp. A very good+ copy in a good+ dust jacket of a quite uncommon book. With Foreword, eight unnumbered pages of b/w photographs, Critical Essay on Authorities, and Index. University of Mississippi Professor A. Wigfall Green examines the archetypal southern political demagogue - Poplarville, Mississippi politician Theodore Gilmore Bilbo (1877-1947). Certainly one of the vilest racists to hold national office, Bilbo vehemently advocated segregationist policies and ranted against fair employment legislation but otherwise adhered to a mostly liberal populist political platform. An ardent Democrat, Bilbo served as a state senator from 1908 to 1912, as lieutenant governor from 1912 to 1916, and as governor from 1916 to 1920 and again from 1928 to 1932. Bilbo was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1934, 1940, and again in 1946 although he did not serve his last term after the Senate refused to seat him. Bookseller Inventory #
