Edgar, PB Random House PP New York, NY YR 1969 AB 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.
