First edition of this work on the the 1972 American election. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Warmly inscribed by Theodore H. White on the half-title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears and wrinkling to the foot of the spine.
In The Making of the President 1972, the fourth volume of narrative history of American politics in action, Theodore H. White brings his defining quartet of campaign narratives to a surprising and riveting close. The consummate journalist, White chronicles both the Democratic and the Republican parties as they jockeyed for position toward the end of Richard M. Nixon's turbulent first term.
