Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------ECONOMICS IN A FREE SOCIETY by Howard L. Hurwitz and Frederick Shaw. This extremely rare textbook was written by one of the most controversial educators in the New York City school system. "You're one of the great generals in the school system," Hurwitz recalls Weinstein telling him. The judge then promised him many things, Hurwitz says in an interview, if he would only comply with a federal law and turn over to the court the breakdown of the nationality and race of the teachers and students in his school. "I said, 'Your honor, I'll never give you the information.' And I never did. Brilliant guy," the 83-year-old Hurwitz says of the judge, "but he wasn't convincing me to give it to him. No way." Hurwitz, who served for three years in the Army Air Force in World War II, retired from the school system after 40 years and is now chairman of the conservative Family Defense Council (FDC). The school principal saw the federal law and the ensuing court battle as efforts "to bring about a correction of the number of Jews in the school system--and I wasn't going to play along with that Hitlerian technique." The anecdote brings into sharp relief Hurwitz's doggedness, toughness, and adherence to principle, which he has brought to bear on everything from his opposition to homosexual activism to his support for drug legalization. This last is rooted in a horrific experience Hurwitz and his wife, Nettie, married for 58 years, had when a drug addict burst into their home a year ago. The criminal knocked them to the floor, threatened them with a hammer, tied them up, and stole cash and the jewelry his wife had accumulated over their decades of marriage. The FDC chairman asserts that crime would plummet if drugs were legal. Moreover, he says, the cartels would be bankrupted and tens of billions of dollars a year would be saved on law enforcement, some of which could be channeled to drug treatment. Society's quality of life and family structure would be strengthened accordingly. INTO THE NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT As a high school principal, Hurwitz ran a tight ship, emphasizing discipline and an atmosphere of learning. The community loved him for it. In 1976, he achieved nationwide fame when he expelled a student he felt was "psychotic." This is the only stated Oxford Edition from 1965. Other than a school sticker on the inside back cover, the book is in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.--and the pages and binding are tight (see photo).
