Description:
text by Louis M. Hacker ; pictorial statistics by Rudolf Modley ; statistical research by George R. Taylor. | "'The United States: A Graphic History' is a work in the economic history of the United States; but it is not written for the specialist or specifically for the class room. It has been prepared for the literate adult American in a vocabulary which, it is expected, will not be the despair of those who have not had university educations. Its text is brief -- it is not more than 60, 000 wordes in length. The visual aids employs, pictorial statistics in this case. are an intergral part of the book rather than simply as illustrative material. Mechanically, the book is everything one might wish; its type-faces is clear and easy to read; the book's bulk is not excessive; and its price is low."--Foreword. | In original dust jacket. | Dust jacket is in very fragile condition. | Includes bibliographic references (p. 236-242) | English. | The Christopher DeNoon Collection for the Study of New Deal Culture.
