Fair. This is a used book. It may contain highlighting/underlining and/or the book may show heavier signs of wear. It may also be ex-library or without dustjacket. All orders are shipped the same or the next day.
Acceptable. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover or binding but integrity is still intact. There might be writing in the margins, possibly underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
I read this book in college, many years ago. It's a measure of Hofstadter's abilities as an historian that it continues to be relevant--in fact, even more so now than when I read it 30 years ago. The frightful coalition between Evangelicals and Know Nothings is, once again, ascendant, and this go round, poised to use the mass media to inflict havoc on the political system. I'm glad Hofstadter didn't live to see this particularly vile incarnation of what he describes as a core theme in American history. He would be appalled.
