Why Europe Leaves Home

by Kenneth L. Roberts

[New York]: The Bobbs-Merrill Company Publishers, 1922. First. Very Good-. First edition in dark maroon cloth It is believed to have been Robert's personal copy, autographed on front fly leaf in ink "Kenneth L Roberts, Kennebunk Beach, July 28, 1926" and annotated with pencil comments on several pages as well as inked comments on the rear endpaper and rear board adjacent to pasted newspaper clippings There is no documented provenance for this belief, but the annotations appear in the same hand as the author's signature, and the nature of the comments appears authorial More research would be needed to confirm this however, so I am only offering this copy as a signed book, not necessarily the author's own


This was Roberts' first book, based on his journalistic experiences during and just after World War I For those of us who grew up reading his many thrilling and thoroughly researched historical fiction works, such as Arundel, Northwest Passage and Oliver Wiswell, it is disappointing to find in this work that he was very anti-immigration and anti-Semitic

Kenneth Lewis Roberts (1885 -1957) was an American writer of historical novels He worked first as a journalist, becoming nationally known for his work with the Saturday Evening Post from 1919 to 1928, and then as a popular novelist Born in Kennebunk, Maine, Roberts specialized in regionalist historical fiction, often writing about his native state and its terrain and also about other upper New England states and scenes For example, the main characters in Arundel and Rabble in Arms are from Kennebunkport (then called Arundel), the main character in Northwest Passage is from Kittery, Maine and has friends in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and the main character in Oliver Wiswell is from Milton, Massachusetts

While a reporter for the Saturday Evening Post in the early 1920s, Roberts wrote many magazine articles that urged strong legal restrictions on immigration from eastern and southern Europe and from Mexico, warning of the dangers of immigration from places other than northwestern Europe His opinions and descriptions of other nationalities and races are difficult to read today, and would not be considered acceptable This book collects some of his Post articles, and is offered not to promote such views, but only as an historical record of the time 356 pp.

The pages are white, crisp and clear of any markings. "This is a history of the visual arts produced in the geographical area that now constitutes the United States. Such a book is difficult to title. A History of United States Art sounds awkward and logically might even be construed to exclude the arts of the colonial period. Thus, with apologies to our northern and southern neighbors, I use the title A History of American Art, knowing full well that the terms America and the United States are not synonymous...." - Preface from A History of American Art

Description:
Indianapolis: Dog Ear Publishing, January 2013. Trade Paperback. Fine. Slight reading wear to corners, otherwise pristine. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. Not damaged. Suitable for gifting. 163 pages. The 25 authors of this book were volunteers in the first Peace Corps rural community development project in Africa: Sierra Leone, 1965-67. They are also the first group to tell a collective story of Peace Corps volunteers, anywhere. The Peace Corps was in its infancy then, and memories of John Kennedy were strong among the young volunteers. Sierra Leone was also in its infancy in the first few years after independence, before military coups and tribal warfare became common. The authors forthrightly recount their feelings of loneliness and isolation, and their frightening experiences with secret societies and witchcraft, but their uniquely optimistic "can-do" American attitude brought most through a great life experience.
