Fruits of propaganda in the Tyler administration by Frederick Merk( Book )

8 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in English and German and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: In every respect the book reaches the high standards of excellence we have learned to expect from this amazing octogenarian... This is an important, provocative book, bringing attention to an early example of executive manipulation of foreign policy through covert domestic activities, and reminding us that 'Manifest Destiny' in the 1840s received a healthy shove from the lightly regarded John Tyler.This book reveals John Tyler's unique use of presidential secret funds... The first part treats propaganda involved in stabilizing the northern boundary [in Maine]...the second reveals propaganda used in expanding the Southwest... The book's parts fit nicely into a masterful and well-written whole, marked by unity and continuity. Significant new material will beckon researchers to this book
