5 ANDERSON Farmer Seeks Jeffersonian Democracy.

ANDERSON, BRUCE. The Farmer Seeks Jeffersonian Democracy. Baltimore, King Brothers, Inc., Printers (c1943) vii, 279pp, bibliography, index. Bound faded blue cloth with gilt title on spine and front cover, covers lightly soiled, contents clean. "This is a series of eleven studies dealing with the status of democracy in the United States. The first eight are a history of the movement from early times; how our founding Fathers through the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Dream of Jefferson laid the foundation to preserve liberty within the nation; how forces within our body, economic and politic, heave deflected democracy from its natural course. The last three chapters deal with the individual, the organized community and nation, working through laws governing the democratic principle, which, with our genius for freedom will use the forces of farm technology, mass productions and the ballot to restore the abundant life for the masses of mankind, popularly known to Christians as the Kingdom of God... This study is a result of my trying to find the solutions to the problems facing the farmers of the United States..."--Intro., p. vi.
