Scope and content

"Washington: by the Author, 1917. First Edition. Staple-bound pamphlet. Octavo (21cm). Gray printed wrappers; [15] pp. Holes punched for binding at bulked edge, costing a few characters in text (but no loss of sense); covers slightly stained and pulled away from staples, but present and complete; Good or better. A strident criticism of American racial policy following America's entry into the First World War. Miller contrasts the allied rhetoric of international 'democracy' with the treatment meted out to the majoriy of Black Americans, and Black soldiers especially." -Lorne Bair
