Concise and easy-to-read historical text. There are better books on communism but this is ideal for one looking for an overview of the communists during the designated time period or to generally educate a new history or political science student.

I can not review this book as a communist scholar, but I can tell you it helped my son write a high school paper on the communist party. The chapters he used were helpful, easy to read and translate into his own words. The book also gave my son a better understanding of the role the communist party played in the United States. Using google was not a very good resource in that regard. The paper earned an A, so I will give the book 5 stars. :-D

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this hoping for a deeper interpretation of the CPUSA. I found a thinner one. The author seeks a middle of the road interpretation, between Draper/Khler and the new historians who (silly them) think the CPUSA was more autonomous from the Comintern than it was (Moscow gold was real, one Rosenberg really was guilty, the CPUSA largely did what it was told to do even though its organizers did their best when they disobeyed, and the CPUSA today is little more than a leafletting wing of the Democratic Party). The writer relies largely on resources that have to be seen as second tier and fails to understand important issues, indeed doesn't even cite them, as with the Dutt-Dimitroff debate closing the Third Period. Even so, nobody is going to be harmed by this reminder of the CPUSA. But T. Draper remains the benchmark and those who have not read his work will miss a lot.
