"The House of Governors" is a pamphlet published by William George Jordan in 1907 that deals with the ideas of uniform legislation, state rights, centralisation, and democracy in US politics. It was circulated to each state governor, US President Theodore Roosevelt, and members of his cabinet. The article was well received, and the first meeting of the governors was held in Washington from the 18th of January to the 20th, 1910. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in American political history, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Jordan's seminal work. William George Jordan (1864 - 1928) was an American lecturer, editor, and essayist. He is most famous for his self-help books, especially those on the subject of mental training and cognitive improvement. Other notable works by this author include: "Mental Training" (1894), "The Kingship of Self-Control" (1898), and "The Majesty of Calmness" (1900). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
