Octavo, original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and black. First edition. A call to young men to join "The New Crusade" against bootleggers, gangsters and other public enemies who threaten society. The Crusaders, founded by Fred G. Clark, was a movement devoted to the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment and legalizing the production and sale of alcoholic beverages. "After the repeal of prohibition in 1933, The Crusaders remained active in politics, attacking various New Deal policies throughout the 1930s. In order to spread their views more widely, Clark created a radio program, The Voice of the Crusaders, which was broadcast until 1937. In 1939, Clark established a new organization with which he would remain affiliated for the remainder of his life. During the campaign to end prohibition, Clark became convinced that many Americans suffered from "economic illiteracy," and that some program needed to be created which could "simplify economics for the masses." To this end he founded the American Economic Foundation, of which he was general chairman, a post that he held until a month before his death in 1973." - Fred G. Clark Papers, Herbert Hoover Presidential Library West Branch, Iowa.
