THE WEB: The Authorized History of the American Protection League. Emerson Hough. THE WEB: The Authorized History of the American Protection League.
Chicago: Reilly & Lee Co. (1919). First edition. By a writer best known for his westerns. The quasi-government American Protection League was "a voluntary organization that attempted to enforce patriotism and stifle dissent during World War I." (Wikipedia). Hough's book calls for "selective immigration, deportation of un-Americans, and denaturalization of 'disloyal' citizens and anarchists" saying "[w]e must purify the source of America's population and keep it pure." Sad to say such thinking continues to this day. Very good in good or better dust jacket with internal repair to small chip at base of spine and long tear in rear panel.
