318 pp, 351 pp, 9 1/4" H - 2 volume set. 'The Rush for Spoils' - published 1972, ISBN 0771076754. 'Pillars of Profit' - published 1973, ISBN 077107672X. B&w illustrations. "This is an extensively researched and thorough history of British Columbia that represents a new departure in the political and historical literature of the province. (The) first volume covers the years to 1933, when Conservative Premier Tolmie was replaced by the Liberal Pattullo. (The second volume covers) the stormy years of T.D. Pattullo's war on the Great Depression, the Liberal-Conservative coalition against Socialism, the reign of W.A.C. Bennett and Social Credit during twenty years of scandal and controversy and, finally, the victory of the N.D.P. under Dave Barrett in the general election of August, 1972. Dr. Robin's critical approach to the politicians, their ideologies and policies, is supported by a mass of facts that will make this well-written and entertaining study a standard reference work for years to come." The Rush for Spoils has minor wrinkle at bottom of spine and very small light stain on top of text block. Dust Jackets: 'The Rush for Spoils' has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, four small edge tears archivally taped. 'Pillars of Profit' has very light edge wear and rubbing.
