[solid copy, moderate wear to cloth at top/bottom edges, small nick in cloth at bottom of rear cover near spine, tiny tears/minor fraying at top of spine; jacket is just Fair, with soiling, chipping, etc.]. A trashy novel with a social conscience, it would appear, about a "dynamic young foreman in the effeminate Earle Prescott's industrial empire," who gets involved with the boss's wife (and various "other attractive females that inhabit their Southern town"), and subsequently is nominated for governor of the state, at which point he gets involved in the segregation vs. integration battle.
