    The Moving American (plus: The M-Factor in American History) (SIGNED COPY) by Pierson, George Wilson

Signed by Author. gilt titles spine; author's initials & fountain design blind-stamped to front cover; blind-stamped publisher's device to rear; inserted card reads: "for Frank in Token of gratitude and respect George" (the Frank referred to here is the late Frank Thistlethwaite - first chairman of the Association for American Studies & tutor in American History at St. John's College, Cambridge, U.K.); Also sold with this book is a reprinted supplement from the American Quarterly Summer, 1962, pages 278-289, being an article by G.W Pierson entitled "The M-Factor in American History" & inscribed: "for Frank, who knows more about this than anyone - George"; "In this profound and stimulating study, G. W. Pierson argues that moving indeed has a neglected and deep significance for Americans. Beginning as explorers, empire builders, pilgrims, and refugees, we have been moving ever since - not only toward the Western frontier but townward and cityward, too, and from farm to farm, from state to state, from 'home' to 'home.' Mr. Pierson shows how these restless habits have affected our language, our laws, our economy, our landscape, our homes, our life styles, our entire society. The fact that we define success in terms of motion, and failure in its opposite, is just one of the startling ways in which our propensity for movement has permeated the very core of our psyches."; a clean copy in a protected, price-intact D/J.; the text of this book is set in 'Caledonia' (a Dwiggins typeface design); 290 pages plus index.

    The Fifties by David Halberstam

    Villard Books, 1993. Soft cover. Very Good. From the book, ""I am a child of the fifties. I graduated from high school in 1951, from college in 1955, and my values were shaped in that era. I wanted to write a book which would not only explore what happened in the fifties, a more interesting and complicated decade than most people imagine, but in addition, to show why the sixties took place--because so many of the forces which exploded in the sixties had begun to come together in the fifties, as the pace of life in America quickened. In large part this book reflects my desire as a grown man to go back and look at things that happened when I was much younger."" Soft cover in very good condition. Text block clean and tight. Book has many black & white photographs. No markings noted.

    New York, New York, U.S.A.: Pantheon Books, 1986. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7 in- 9 in Tall. Soft cover, very good condition. 462 pages.Hard Times: An Oral History of the Great Depression by Studs Terkel is a panoramic chronicle of the 1930's, comprised entirely of interviews. It provides a top to bottom vision of the Depression, from the establishment that coped with the crisis to the hustlers and hobos that scraped by through it. Written in the late 1960's, the book also includes interviews with younger people. In his prologue, Terkel explains that the time has come to speak to the ignorant young about catastrophe.
