Commies: A Journey Through the Old Left, the New Left and the Leftover Left Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Radosh recounts his childhood with communist parents, college political activity, his defection from the left when he wrote The Rosenberg File, and his encounters in Central America with old acquaintances.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Commies is a brilliant memoir of growing up in the culture of radicalism. But it also about the hard decisions faced by those professing a radical faith. For Radosh himself, the crisis came when he concluded in his authoritative book on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg that the couple (in whose behalf he had demonstrated as a boy) had indeed been guilty of spying. Attacked as a traitor, Radosh began to question his political commitments. His disillusionment climaxed in the 1980s when he traveled through Central America as a journalist and historian and ran into his old comrades there still searching for the revolution.
