Comments: This book " `deserves to rank among the two or three really historic contributions to political science which have been produced in the United States'(Beard, post, p. 323)...The American government, he (Taylor) explained, was one of divided powers, not classes, and its agents were responsible to the sovereign people alone. The great danger to democracy lay in consolidation and in the creation of an aristocracy of `paper and patronage.'" DAB XVIII, p. 332. Taylor, the Virginia patriot, "presents the contemporary political ideas of the agrarian South." Howes T-63. S&S 32910.

Dear Mr. Hample, Just a short note to confirm receipt of the book and my absolute satisfaction with it. I am in the process of building a library of books from the interwar period to document and understand the events as seen by contemporaries as very often knowledge of what happened afterwards colours the views of historians. I am mainly focussed on Italian matters but books describing current events in other countries such as Germany, UK, France, Spain, Japan and the US are of interest to me. If you have a catalogue or can indicate to me any other books that you think could interest me, I would be very gratefll.Thank you in advance and best regards. - Massimo C.
