On the technical and stylistic side, the book was an easy and fairly quick read but there were some random symbols that I suspect happened when the book was changed to e-format.
I first read this book on line, and have been recommending it ever since. I think it should be required reading in all schools, but that will not happen as teachers belong to unions, and Bella tells about the communist penetration into the unions; she herself into the NEA. At this time, in WI, the Communist Party USA has joined the Unions to fight against Gov Walker and the taxpayers. So much of what Bella talks about gives me insight into what I see happening today.
As a communist, another of her jobs was to organize women during WWII to engage in an anti war effort. When she asked, "Does this mean our comrades should not enter the military?" "No. How else will they get trained for the revolution?" The goal appeard to be just agitation, and creation of civil unrest. I see a connection with SDS, Bill Ayers, and other anti war movements.
She said the communist party attracted good people who wanted to "help the poor." We see this in those who think Alinsky community organizing is to "help the poor," and do not realize there is a political agenda behind it.
Again, I think everyone shoud read this book. It not only helps us to understand history, but what is happening in our society today.
