Very good in dustjacket. 100.00 "The Russian Civil War of 1917-20, out of which the Soviet Union was born, is one of the most significant events in modern Russian history. 'The Russian Civil War' is the first comprehensive study of this important period to be published in the English language in over fifty years. 'The Russian Civil War' is a lucid and readable treatment of a complicated subject. The reader is guided through the conflict: over vast territories and populations and through the intricacies of different governments, armies, political parties, and national groups. Focusing on the basic question of why the 'Reds' won and their enemies lost, it avoids an unbalanced concentration on either side. The book will be valuable for university students new to Russian history; specialists will find it a useful reference work. Both will benefit from its comprehensive research and bibliographical essay. 'The Russian Civil War' also brings this apocalyptic period to life for the general reader interested in Russia, revolutionary politics or military history." - from the dustjacket.

Pp (6),[vii]-xvi,(4),[3]-427,(3). 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Harvard Economic Studies, Volume 79. Rhodenizer p.171. James Ackley Maxwell (b.March 7, 1897 in Westville, Pictou County, Nova Scotia - d. 1975, Worceste r, Mass.) was educated at Dalhousie and Harvard. "The significance of federalism in public finance has for the most part been overlooked, even by American writers. It is the thesis of this volume that American federalism has fiscal problems for which outright centralization is no cure. States' rights properly defined have a genuine meaning, and only by cool consideration of them can our governmental machinery be arranged to cope with the job thatlies ahead. Mr. Maxwell's historical survey crystallzes the research done by a number of experts and presents much new material. His book brings out the difficulties faced by a modem federalism in achieving a coherent fiscalsystem, analyzes the fiscal problems now facing federalism in the United S tates, and suggests remedies for these perplexities. It will be of interestto everyone concerned with the problems of public finance, to students of government, to journalists, and to economists."- from front dj flap. 1. Prologue; 2.
