Format: Hardcover
Leninism? Did the other reviewer even read the book? Lloyd discusses the US left's rejection of traditional marxism (not leninism) in favor of Dewey influenced pragmatism. Leninism (really, any aspect of it) has little to do with the book, especially since much of the book covers the American Left BEFORE the rise of Lenin to power.

Format: Hardcover
Quite a dramatic step outside of the accepted historical interpretations of this socially charged era. Lloyd's conclusions are radical, but very well supported and exceptionally well argued. At first I was skeptical, but by the turn of the last page, I found substantial merit in this work. As a piece of literature, Mr. Lloyd has a success!

I have had an interest in this period of American history for over 50 years, have studied it, and I genuinely disagree with Lloyd, though I can understand his reasoning. My guess is that the author is a hard-hearted Marxist, who is dissapointed in the success of Capitalism. However, his theory is compelling to the point that I began to question my own set theory.
