Going Around in Academic Circles:  A Low View of Higher Education, Armour, Richard
1 Armour, Richard Going Around in Academic Circles: A Low View of Higher Education
New York McGraw-Hill Book Company 1965 First Edition Cloth Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket 
Illustrated by Hershfield, Leo

Blue boards are clean and bright. Very minor wear at bottom corners. DJ price-clipped, with very minor edgewear. Humorous illustrations throughout by Leo Hershfield. A clean, attractive copy.

"In what is, in effect, a parody of a college catalog, Armour gives the Armour treatment to such subjects as admissions, campus, roommates, expenses, employment, scholarships, class attendance, grades, physical education, the honor code, faculty advisors, department heads, the curriculum, and commencement speakers. Nothing escapes the Armour-piercing scrutiny. Though this is mostly a prose book, the chapter on Faculty and Staff presents an academic Spoon River Anthology that has more knife than spoon. This book is for everybody, but especially for presidents, deans, professors, alumni, students, drop-outs, drop-ins, and people with a sense of humor."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

My Uncle Oswald, Dahl, Roald
2 Dahl, Roald My Uncle Oswald
New York Ballantine Books 1981 0345294106 / 9780345294104 Mass Market Paperback Good+ 

Reading crease, corners a bit bumped, inside covers starting to yellow, but text clean and unmarked.

"Behold Uncle Oswald, Michelangelo of seduction. He makes Casanova look like Winnie the Pooh. He stumbles - circa 1919 - upon the world's most powerful aphrodisiac: Powered Sudanese Blister Beetle. It makes Spanish Fly look like Ovaltine. When he also learns how to freeze sperm, he comes up with the greatest idea of all time: to use the delectably seductive adventuress Yasmin as bait, feed his aphrodisiac to fifty-one living geniuses and crowned heads of state - from James Joyce to King Albert, from Puccini to Picasso - and sell the results of their unsurpassed excitement to rich and ambitious women who want just the right father for their children."; 6" - 7" Tall

Karma Cola: Marketing the Mystic East, Mehta, Gita
3 Mehta, Gita Karma Cola: Marketing the Mystic East
New York Vintage Books 1994 0679754334 / 9780679754336 First Vintage International Edition Trade Paperback Very Good- 
Illustrated by Carson, Carol Devine [cover]

Spine slightly slanted, some edgewear; text is clean and unmarked.

"No one has observed the West's invasion of India more astutely than Gita Mehta. In 'Karma Cola' the acclaimed novelist trains an unblinking journalistic eye on jaded sadhus and beatific acid burnouts, the Bhagwan and Allen Ginsberg, guilt-tripping English girls and a guru who teaches gullible tourists how to view their previous incarnations. Brilliantly irreverent, hilarious, sobering and wise, Mehta's book is the definitive epitaph for the era of spiritual tourism and all its casualties - both Eastern and Western."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
