1 Bull, Theodore. Introduction by Gwendolen M. Carter. RHODESIA: CRISIS OF COLOR. (COLOUR).
Chicago Quadrangle Books 1968 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- 
184 pp, 8 1/2" H. "Mr. Bull, editor of the 'Central African Examiner' (one of Salisbury's leading magazines before it ceased publication late in 1965 as a result of rigid censorship by the Rhodesian government), presents the first authoritative explanation of the Rhodesian situation. Most of his book is a factual account of the important political, social, and economic changes in Britain's colony from the first European settlement to the present day (1967), with particular attention to the separate develop-ment of the racial communities. The second part of the book is an assessment of British policy before and after Rhodesia's Universal Declaration, and the likely outcome of the present deadlock." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny faint water mark on top of text block; previous owner's signature, name and date on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light to moderate wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light fading/browning on spine, very small tear at top of front panel - archivally taped, some light rubbing with color loss on rear panel.

3 Gagnon, Georgette and Rath, Dan. NOT WITHOUT CAUSE: DAVID PETERSON'S FALL FROM GRACE.
Toronto HarperCollins 1991 0002158426 / 9780002158428 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
408 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "The stunning defeat of David Peterson's powerful Liberal government on September 6, 1990 broke many of the old rules for Canadian elections - and provided the first glimpse of how future elections will be fought. At the center of the story: Liberal leader David Peterson. Young, handsome and rich, he embodied the glory years of the 1980s when Yuppies, BMWs and image politics ruled. His decision to 'go early', to call an election only three years into his mandate, set the wheels in motion. His campaign attracts some of Canada's leading political players: campaign chair Kathy Robinson, whose pivotal position becomes a hotseat as the Liberal slide begins; former Trudeau pollster Martin Goldfarb, anxious to keep a Liberal government in power; David MacNaughton, Goldfarb critic and rival; Bob Nixon, the tough and respected treasurer faced with scuttling his balanced budget in a last-ditch vote-buying attempt; aide Vince Borg, Peterson's long-time friend, who tries to protect the premier from protesters and Liberals alike. These key players and an army of policy experts, strategists, party members, candidates and reporters tangle and clash in the race for power. (The) gripping account of how the Peterson Liberals did not anticipate or prepare for the new trends emerging in Canada's electoral process: the increasing power of special-interest groups, campaign strategies that attack incumbents without offering alternatives, negative advertising, the critical importance of perceptions and the media, an electorate with declining party allegiances and the rise of non-traditional parties. It's also the reavealing tale of how Ontario's New Democratic and Progressive Conservative parties ran campaigns that became a perfect match for the volatile mood of voters." Remainder mark on bottom of text block at spine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at top of spine.

KICKING ASS IN CANADIAN POLITICS., Kinsella, Warren.  Inscribed.
4 Kinsella, Warren. Inscribed. KICKING ASS IN CANADIAN POLITICS.
Random House Canada, n.p., 2001, first printing. 
245 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0679310851 INSCRIBED ON HALF TITLE PAGE: "TO T____ BEST WISHES & MANY THANKS! WARREN NOV. 2001". ALSO INSCRIBED ON VERSO OF FRONT FREE ENDPAPER: "T____, HOPEFULLY MY RETIREMENT WILL BE AS ENJOYABLE AS YOURS, MIKE HARRIS". The second inscription is in two different coloured inks (possibly two different hands). "(F)or the first time, Kinsella lifts the veil on what really goes on inside campaigns - and it's not pretty. This is the good, the bad and the ugly of partisan politics, and Kinsella argues that all three are necessary for a healthy and democratic political dialogue. But this isn't a cynic's book on how to manipulate the voting public. The advice from the Prince of Darkness is 'stay on message, and stick to the truth'. Those practitioners of the black arts who resort to lies and cheating are most often burned at the stake by the voters. And he marshals plenty of evidence and insider stories from the hottest campaigns and campaigners in Canada and the United States - among them, James Carville, Besey Wright, Haley Barbour and Dick Morris - to prove his point. Your'll learn about push-polling, frugging, ratf**king, quick response, dirty tricks and oppo, and you'll learn how to counter them all. You'll be treated to Kinsella's Twelve Handy Tips for Surviving Encounters with Unethical, Unscrupulous, Unprincipled Political Journalists, as well as to his unique rating system on whose political reporting you can trust. This is a must-read not only for political junkies but also for marketers and PR flaks alike: it is a handbook, not only on how to win, but how to make sure your opponent loses." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some minor rubbing/tiny shallow dints on rear panel. Very Good+/Very Good+
