Rum, Religion, and Votes: 1928 Re-examined
"The first section of this book presents arithmetic evidence that Alfred Smith was a strong Democratic candidate in 1928. The second presents statistical proof that the so-called liquor, religious, and metropolitan issues had no significant relation to Smith's electoral strength. The third and final section is concerned with problems of political historiography in the study of American elections."--Publisher's description.
