Book Review
This article critiques the book "The Age of Suspicion," by James A. Wechsler. The book describes the Communism that most American Communists know--a world of sodden fanaticism ruled by futile sectarians. In explaining why people broke with this world, it demonstrates the superior appeal of free society for normal men and women. Further, the book strikes heartening notes of democratic faith and fortitude in times of trouble. It is opined that the book should do a great deal to help people understand what participation in the Communist movement meant for the majority people of United States.
