"Radosh has been called 'the Zelig of the American Left-- seen everywhere and knowing everyone.' Indeed, Commies is filled with memorable portraits of the people he has met in his unique journey-- schoolmate Mary Travers, later of the folk group Peter, Paul and Mary; Pete Seeger, who taught him the banjo and the Communist Party's musical line; young Bob Dylan, who played folk music with him at Radosh's apartment in Madison. Michael Harrington, Tom Hayden, Michael Lerner, William Appleman Williams, Irving Howe, and all the others who made 'the Movement' are also actors in Radosh's drama. But if Commies is an intimate social history of the American Left over the past half-century, it is also a compelling story of a crisis of radical faith."--Jacket flap.

"When Leftists Become Conservatives -- It sure is a bracing feeling for the chair-bound intellectual to imagine himself the drivetrain in the engine of history"
