On “The Most Dangerous Communist in the United States”:
“A first-rate piece of scholarship and a great book, which amounts not only to the life story of an individual, but a balanced, provocative, and clear-eyed history of American Communism from its 1930s heyday to its virtual collapse in the 1990s.”—Maurice Isserman, author of If I Had a Hammer: The Death of the Old Left and the Birth of the New Left
