In general, this is a first Harper Torchback Edition of Dahl and Lindblom"s POLITICS, ECONOMICS AND WELFARE. My book is in very good condition it is the the orignal paperback cover depicting three crossword pieces show U.S. Flag, Stock Quotes, and maternal family scene. I wish I could say it is like new, but I can say the covers and spine are without creases. The book is in very good condition inside the covers and outside. Know what you are buying inquire of seller. in due time I shall provide a photograph.
