Descriptions On Politics

With a style that combined biting sarcasm with the “language of the free lunch counter,” Henry Louis Mencken shook politics and politicians for nearly half a century. Now, fifty years after Mencken’s death, the Johns Hopkins University Press announces The Buncombe Collection, newly packaged editions of nine Mencken classics: Happy Days, Heathen Days, Newspaper Days, Prejudices, Treatise on the Gods, On Politics, Thirty-Five Years of Newspaper Work, Minority Report, and A Second Mencken Chrestomathy.

These seventy political pieces from the 1920s and 1930s are drawn from Mencken’s famous Monday columns in the Baltimore Evening Sun.
