1973 1st Fear and Loathing Campaign Trail 1972 Thompson

Lot 0100


1973 1st Fear and Loathing Campaign Trail 1972 Thompson Politics President Nixon

Presidential candidate McGovern ran against, and lost to, Richard Nixon (an arch-nemesis of Thompson's), and Thompson was one of the few journalists who stuck with McGovern throughout his campaign, resulting in a lifelong friendship. While Thompson is almost universally revered for his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Campaign Trail '72 remains one of the best pieces of political writing written during the 20th century. It is A vivid, eyewitness, month-by-month account of the Watergate election campaign of 1972, and the personalities (Nixon, McGovern, Humphrey, Edward Kennedy, Agnew) who made it happen.

This 1973 book is a first edition with an early second state dust jacket with 64 b/w illustrations by Ralph Steadman and b/w photographs from the campaign trail.
