5.0 out of 5 stars was the anticommunist witchhunt justified?, April 30, 2011

This review is from: After Long Silence (Hardcover)
The author came from a wealthy family and studied economics under Keynes. He became part of the student communist group at Cambridge, UK, but became disillusioned with the Party and returned to the US in 1938. After being a speechwriter for FDR, he wrote for the magazine New Republic. Not until after the war did he approach the FBI and share his knowledge on the communists he knew from his youth. This book helps one understand why so many well-educated young people became involved with communism. This may seem like very 'dry' material, but the way the author integrates the story of his personal life with historical events keeps it interesting. 351 pages, indexed.
