96 pp, 8" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w cartoons. "(A) classic civics-class lesson on the process of American politics. One of its most fascinating characters is one P.T. Bridgeport, who reveals a remarkable ability for puffery and vacuous statements of political fact. And Pogo, in remaining immune to the political flu, raises serious questions about the American way of politics: What are the responsibilities of the candidate to the people? And, as important, what are the responsibilities of the people to the candidate?" Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning - mainly on the spine, minor edge wear, tiny closed tear with crease on fore edge of front cover, small bump on bottom of text block/rear cover (effects approx. page 60 to end of book), spine is flat with a very faint crease.
