Dodge Publishing, 1938 221 pp with one map. Text is clean, tight and unmarked, somewhat yellowed. Glue stains to endpapers. Red cloth boards with gold-stamped titles are clean and undamaged save for slight bumping to extremities. Harold Thomas Henry Carter (1903,[1] Baku, USSR -1944, Hollywood, California), aka Boake Carter, was an American national news commentator in the 1930s and early 1940s. He rose to fame as a broadcast journalist when he covered the Lindbergh kidnapping trial for CBS, beginning in 1932. After achieving fame, he was a familiar radio voice, but his commentaries were controversial, notably his criticisms of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal and the powerful Congress of Industrial Organizations. Carter was an accomplished salesman for the sponsor of his program from 1933-1938, Philco Radios, blending his reporting and commentary with plugs for the company's sets. In 1936, he had more listeners than any other radio commentator By 1937, the Roosevelt White House already had three federal agencies investigating him In 1938, under pressure from Roosevelt's allies, he was barred from CBS, and lost his General Foods sponsorship that had replaced Philco With his removal, there was no longer any popular radio commentator who opposed Roosevelt's foreign policy. " Why Meddle in the Orient?" advocates an isolationist position in regards to Japan's invasion of Manchuria.. Second Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket.
