"A Douglas Gibson Book."
"Emblem"--P. [4] of cover.
Summary, etc.:
"Here's the set up: A burnt-out politcal aide quits just before an election - but is forced to run a hopeless campaign on the way out. He makes a deal with a crusty old Scot, Angus McLintock - an engineering professor who will do anything, anything, to avoid teaching English to engineers - to let his name stand in the election. No need to campaign, certain to lose, and so on."--Provided by the publishers.
