Description:
by Granville Hicks ; decorations by Richard M. Bennett. | "Composed and printed in the United States of America by Union Labor"--t.p. verso. | "Granville Hicks is the author of The Great Tradition and John Reed, the Making of a Revolution. He likes this America which he knows and in which his people have lived for generations. But he is very much interested in the people who he suspects 'feel no positive affection' for their native land--'the underprivileged,' who have little reason to like America, who 'lack patriotism because they don't share in America's greatness.' What Mr. Hicks would like to do is convince these people--some eighty percent of the population of the United States--that 'even if they haven't much of a stake in America as it is, they have a tremendous stake in America as it might be.'"--Dust jacket flap. | English. | The Christopher DeNoon Collection for the Study of New Deal Culture.
