Description:

First printing (not stated) INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR. [6], 134 pages. Hardcover: H 23.5cm x L 15.75cm. White dust jacket rubbed, spine and flap fold ends nicked, short closed tear at front panels' top left, nicks along front flap fold, strong abrasion along rear flap fold; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Blue cloth, vibrant gilt stamped lettering to spine and front board, several small discolored abraded patches to cloth at spine head and along top board edges. Author's five-line ink inscription upon the front free endpaper: "To Al Rosenbaum | A Longtime Friend | Best Wishes, | Erle Johnston | Aug. 20/1990." Interior pages are otherwise clean. Binding is firm. A very good copy in a very good- dust jacket. With Preface, four unpaged leaves of b/w illustrations, and Acknowledgements. Sympathetic biography of Ross Barnett, governor of Mississippi from 1960-1964, focusing upon his political campaigns and administration. An ardent segregationist, Barnett's political reign was noted by his fervent arguments regarding states' rights, his opposition to the integration of the University of Mississippi at Oxford - Ole Miss - via the enrollment of James Meredith, and the ensuing riots which still haunt the placid college town. Author Erle Johnston served as publicity manager for Ross Barnett's 1955 and 1959 gubernatorial campaigns and was appointed Public Relations Director for the State Sovereignty Commission from 1960-1963 and as commission director from 1963-1968. The notorious State Sovereignty Commission overtly colluded with the Citizens' Councils and allegedly cooperated with the Ku Klux Klan in hindering Justice Department investigations and repressing the activities of civil rights and voter registration organizations throughout the state. The book's inscribee, Ike Alfred Rosenbaum (1920-2012), was a civil right activist, businessman, and philanthropist and served as mayor of Meridian, Mississippi from 1977 to 1985. {Shelf#3} ISBN 0865180172.
