    THE SECRETS OF THE HOPEWELL BOX: Stolen Elections, Southern Politics, and a City's Coming of Age.

    Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )

    New York: Times Books, (1994). First edition - Book described as "a case study in the power of the three most irrepressible forces in politics--class struggle, racism, and personal friendship. The focus is Nashville from the 1930s to the 1970s. The chief characters are the author's grandfather, Dave White, the "enforcer" for the Robinson-Sheridan-Garfinckle machine, and Squires himself, who started out as a reporter for the Nashville Tennessean, which crusaded for decades against that machine. Squires' memoir has more than local appeal because of Nashville's central role in civil rights history. The machine long sought African Americans' support; the Tennessean championed elimination of the poll tax; and John Lewis (now a Georgia congressman) led the city's soda fountain sit-ins."
