Battleground 1948: Truman, Stevenson, Douglas and the Most Surprising Election in Illinois History (Hardback)Robert Hartley (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
In addition to in-depth revelations on the saga of the American election machine in 1948, Hartley probes the dark underbelly of Illinois politics in the 1930s and 1940s to set the stage, spotlight key party players, and expose the behind-the-scenes influences of media, money, corruption, and crime. In doing so, he draws powerful parallels between the politics of the past and those of the present. Above all, Battleground 1948 tells the story of grassroots change writ large on the American political landscape-change that helped a nation move past an era of conflict and depression, and forever transformed Illinois and the U.S. government.
