Where Communism Is Strong—and Why

James, Daniel
December 1954
New Republic;12/13/54, Vol. 131 Issue 24, p9
The article focuses on the rise of communism in the U.S. The author reports that two clashes with communism on the soil of the U.S. have been short-lived and not very sanguine. One occurred in a colony of no major significance and one in a republic that is small and weak. Nevertheless, those conflicts reverberated throughout the globe as well as the hemisphere. British Guiana was hotly debated from London to New Delhi and Guatemala strife occasioned the second emergency meeting in the history of the United Nations Security Council. It became abundantly clear that the U.S. had had a brush not with native radicals in two out-of-the-way places but with probing fingers of an incipient Soviet conspiracy against the U.S.
