J. Edgar Hoover on communism by J. Edgar Hoover( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 1,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Blurb: This authoritative book presents the distillation of J. Edgar Hoover's views on communism in America as he has studied it for fifty years. In a long introductory essay he appraises the Party's "new look" as well as the pressing issues of the moment-including the role of the New Left, the civil rights movement and black nationalism-and evaluates the menace of communism today. Since 1919, when he studied the earliest documents of communism to prepare legal briefs for the Attorney General, Mr. Hoover has followed closely the progress of the Party in this country. The main body of this book is a compilation of selected quotations taken from Mr. Hoover's writings and speeches over the years on this vital subject. These quotations have been arranged by subject, such as Communism and Religion, Front Groups, Communism and Youth, Espionage, Agitation Tactics, and Communist Party, USA-twenty-four topics in all-and demonstrate clearly and importantly the ramifications of this twentieth-century conspiracy

Masters Of Deceit : the Story Of Communism In America And How To Fight It by J. Edgar Hoover( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation explains the startling facts about the major menace of our time, communism: what it is, how it works, what its aims are, the real dangers it poses, and what loyal American citizens must know to protect their freedom. MASTERS OF DECEIT is a powerful and informative book-a firsthand account of American communism from its beginnings to the present, written by a man more intimately familiar with the complete story than any other American. Mr. Hoover shows the day-to-day operations of the Communist Party, USA: who the communists are, what they claim, why people be-come communists and why some break away. He describes life within the Party, communist strategy and tactics, methods of mass agitation and underground infiltration, espionage, sabotage, and its treatment of minorities. The picture of what life in this country would be under communism (toward which thou-sands of misguided Americans actually are working now!) is vivid and shocking. The forceful, driving message of this book is clarified with many incidents and anecdotes, definitions of communist terms, key dates, and a list of international communist organizations and publications which illustrate the communist Trojan horse in action. And it concretely outlines just what you can do now to combat the evils of the "false religion" of communism, so that you can stay free. MASTERS OF DECEIT is one of the most important books of our time-a warning of the clear and present danger to our way of life
