The Murders at Kent State [The Truth About Kent State]
NY, Farrar Straus Giroux, (1973). The uncorrected proof copy of the book published as The Truth About Kent State. Davies examines the questions Why did the Guardsmen fire? and Why did the Government do nothing? Obviously the book's title was softened prior to publication, as were the chapter headings (with the word "murder" removed or changed to "violence"). Many more changes were made to the text of the book: casual examination reveals another dozen textual changes over just the first two dozen pages, with the general impression being that Davies' first pass was dialed down in tone, and dialed in on facts. Near fine in tall wrappers. No copies in OCLC. [#036008] $250

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
