1 Hays, Arthur Garfield Democracy Works
New York Random House (c.1939) NO First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj 
[good solid copy, minor shelfwear, some browning to endpapers, previous owner's embossed signature on ffep; jacket shows some wear at edges/extremities, minor chipping along top edge, small surface-peeled spot (1/2" x 3/4") on spine]. A resounding endorsement of Democracy American Style, by the noted attorney and civil libertarian (1881-1954), who became general counsel for the ACLU in 1920 and was subsequently involved in many of the most famous trials in American history, including Scopes "Monkey Trial" (as co-defense counsel with Clarence Darrow), the Sacco-Vanzetti case, and the trial of the "Scottsboro Boys" in 1933. In this work, he "proves that democracy works best, not only from a spiritual and social, but likewise from an economic point of view." The book is "dedicated to my radical friends who regard me as a conservative, to my conservative friends who regard me as a radical, but chiefly to that increasing number of American, who, like myself, are 'just liberals.'" Mr. Hays would surely weep if he could be alive today to observe how "liberal" has been turned into a dirty word by blathering ideologues. Uncommon in the photo-illustrated dust jacket.
