London, England, U.K.: Oxford University Press, 1965. Second Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. This book is a study of the American federal structure as a single integrated system of government, one in which the constitutional structure and the legislative, administrative, and judicial activities combine with the operation of the party system and the pressure groups to provide a highly complex organization within which the federal and state governments are linked together in a mutually interdependent political relationship; it also attempts to formulate a redefinition of the nature of federalism, which embraces the political as well as the legal aspects of this form of government (dark blue cloth with faded gold lettering on spine, covers are sunned along edges, previous owner's name on front endpaper; otherwise a good, clean, tight copy)
