[COLD WAR - RED SCARE] ERNST, Morris L. & David LOTH
Report on the American Communist (Inscribed to Richard Nixon)
New York: Henry Holt, 1952. First Edition. We rather suspect it was political expediency, not any respect for Ernst or this book, that caused Nixon to distance himself from the tactics of McCarthyism in the mid-1950s...but it's still a great association! Octavo (21.5cm). Black cloth boards, lettered in silver on spine; dustjacket; 240pp. Inscribed and signed by Morris Ernst on front endpaper to Senator Richard M. Nixon: "For Senator Nixon - who will no doubt disagree but may still respect the desire to work out a solution other than McCarthyism," undated but apparently contemporary with period of publication. Light wear and soil; bit of foxing to endpapers; jacket slightly faded on spine: a solid, VG copy.
