"In this definitive history of the evolution of the Communist Party in America - from its early background through its founding in 1919 to its emergence as a legal entity in the 1920s - Theodore Draper traces the native and foreign strains that comprised the party. He emphasizes its shifting policies and secrets as well as its open activities. He makes clear how the party in its infancy "was transformed from a new expression of American radicalism to the American appendage of a Russian revolutionary power," a fact that Draper develops in his succeeding volume, American Communism and Soviet Russia." "In his special, prescient way, Theodore Draper himself had the final words on American Communism: "It is like a museum of radical politics. In its various stages, it has virtually been all things to all men ... There are many ways of trying to understand such a movement, but the first task is historical. In some respects, there is no other way to understand it, or at least to avoid seriously misunderstanding it. Every other approach tends to be static, one-sided or unbalanced."" "Draper correctly notes that the formative period of the American Communist movement has remained a largely untold and even unknown story. In part, the reasons for this are that the Communist movement, although a child of the West, grew to power in the Soviet East. But Draper rescues this chapter with deep appreciation for the fact that communism was not something that happened just in Russia, but also in the United States. This is a must read for scholars and laypersons alike."--Jacket.… (plus d'informations)

(from the cover) "The untold story of the formative years of the Communist Party in America."
  LanternLibrary | Nov 11, 2017 |
The standard history of the American Communist movement. Draper is a skilled historian. The author helps elucidate complex sectarian struggles in the party. Even if one reads closely though, it can be difficult to keep the different factions straight.
This book also made me aware of the ideological crisis that occured in the Russian party when the revolution failed to materialize in Western Europe. A solid basis for an further reading about the American left. Recommended and not dry. ( )
