The goose-step; a study of American education. Second edition

Pasadena: published by the author, 1923. x, 488p.,original illustrated cloth binding mildly worn.

"The Goose-Step begins with Sinclair's memories of his own education at Columbia University; and his bitterest attack is directed toward Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia, whom he saw as a puppet of the city's business interests. The remainder of the book is a travelogue of American campuses, none of which is without scandal in the ranks of their alumni organizations, trustees, or top officials. Even in 1923 Sinclair was able to attack college athletics for being 'universally commercialized.'" *John Ahouse, Upton Sinclair a descriptive, annotated bibliography, p. 47.
