good, fair. 640, footnotes, index, DJ worn, soiled, and edge tears. Introduction by Jeffrey Hart. Willmoore Kendall was an original: the most provocative political scientist to emerge since World War II, and one of the memorable stylists of the 20th century. He never wrote a sentence that didn't crackle, and he never held a dull class. He had a profound effect on a whole generation of students, and this collection attests to his genius. It will delight veteran Kendall admirers.
