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

Ronald Radoshs earliest memory is of being trundled off to a May Day demonstration by his Communist parents. Radosh grew up in the parallel universe of American Communism. When he entered the University of Wisconsin in the late 1950s, he became a founding father of the New Left and was on the center stage during the sixties.But if Commies is an intimate social history of the American Left over the past halfcentury, it is also a compelling story of a crisis of radical faith.
