2 Alexander, (PC Ont), Lincoln with Herb Shoveller Go to School, You're a Little Black Boy The Honourable Lincoln M. Alexander: A Memoir
Toronto Dundurn Press 2010 155488733X / 9781554887330 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ Illustrated by Colour Photographs 
Slight wear to card covers, shallow crease bottom back fore corner. ; A bright, solid book ; Trade PB; 8.90 X 5.98 X 0.71 inches; 256 pages; Among the important stories that need to be told about noteworthy Canadians, Lincoln Alexander's sits at the top of the list. Born in Toronto in 1922, the son of a maid and a railway porter, Alexander embarked on an exemplary life path that has involved military service for his country, a successful political career, a thriving law career, and vocal advocacy on subjects ranging from antiracism to the importance of education."In this biography, Shoveller traces a remarkable series of events from Alexander's early life to the present that helped shape the charismatic and influential leader whose impact continues to be felt today. From facing down racism to challenging the postwar Ontario establishment, becoming Canada's first black member of Parliament, entertaining royalty as Ontario's lieutenant-governor, and serving as chancellor of one of Canada's leading universities, Alexander's is the ultimate, uplifting Canadian success story, the embodiment of what defines Canada."

Card covers show very light shelf wear and soil. ; A bright, solid book.; 7.80 X 5.12 X 1 inches; 126 pages; "A Red Tory is an adherent of a progressive conservative political philosophy, tradition and disposition in Canada, similar to the "small-c" tradition in the United Kingdom; it is contrasted with "Blue Tory" or "High Tory". In Canada, Red Toryism is found in provincial and federal Conservative political parties.""Red Toryism derives largely from a classical conservative tradition that maintained that the unequal division of wealth and political privilege among social classes can be justified if members of the privileged class practiced noblesse oblige and contributed to the common good. Red Tories supported traditional institutions such as religion and the monarchy, and maintenance of the social order. This position was later manifest in their support for some aspects of the welfare state." (Wikipedia).

13 Lewis, Sinclair It Can't Happen Here; a Novel
Garden City Doubleday, Doran 1935 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good- with no dust jacket 
Black cloth covered boards show some edge wear, gilt print on spine somewhat worn but still legible (no fraying apart from one corner), corners bumped, some shelf soil on boards. ; Stated 1st edition, a tight solid book, hinges intact. Deckled fore edges, blindstamped design on front board ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 458 pages; "It Can't Happen Here is a semi-satirical 1935 political novel by American author Sinclair Lewis, and a 1936 play adapted from the novel by Lewis and John C. Moffitt. Published during the rise of fascism in Europe, the novel describes the rise of Berzelius "Buzz" Windrip, a politician who defeats Franklin Delano Roosevelt and is elected President of the United States, after fomenting fear and promising drastic economic and social reforms while promoting a return to patriotism and "traditional" values. After his election, Windrip takes complete control of the government and imposes a plutocratic/totalitarian rule with the help of a ruthless paramilitary force, in the manner of Adolf Hitler and the SS. The novel's plot centers on journalist Doremus Jessup's opposition to the new regime and his subsequent struggle against it as part of a liberal rebellion. Reviewers at the time, and literary critics ever since, have emphasized the connection with Louisiana politician Huey Long, who was preparing to run for president in the 1936 election when he was assassinated in 1935 just prior to the novel's publication." Current events in the US, i.e. Donald Trump and company, have made this book into a must read for anyone concerned about the future of the US.

These books appear to be sponsored by the United Nations. Volume one, published in 1960, is an analysis of the rise of Fidel Castro and his followers, the reactions of the Organization of American States, the legal repercussions with regard to the Monroe Doctrine and the relations with the Latin American countries as well as the US embargo on exports to Cuba, which exists to this day. Volume 2 contains a brief analysis of the events and repercussions in Volume one and expands to include the events through to mid-1963. In that period the US, under John F. Kennedy, attempted to depose Castro as evidenced by the disastrous 'Bay of Pigs' attack. Later, the whole world held its breath, fearing a nuclear war between the US and the USSR when the US navy was instructed to blockade Cuba after evidence of a buildup of Russian nuclear weapons became evident to the US intelligence services. The 'October Crisis' which pitted JFK against Krushchev in a battle of wits is analysed as well as the actions of the UN and other countries which sided with Cuba. Also present are communications between the interested parties - JFK, Krushchev and U Thant, Secretary General of the United Nations . These books are scarce, available in libraries but none appear for sale in the major databases.
