best books continued

5.} One Day in the life of Ivan Denisovich- A. I. Solzhenitsyn
An epic by the Moral giant of our age. go from that to his many
essays. A great antidote the materialism, Both collectivist and post modern
western varieties.

6]. Witness- Whittaker Chambers
a classic former insiders view of the history of the American Left.
Chambers most endearing feature was his refusal to embrace
doctrinaire formulas. He understood that one should not conform ones
views to the political horse race of American politics. he always maintained
his independance and critical thinking. read Tannenbaums biography and his devastating
review of Ayn Rands "atlas Shrugged"

7.} The whole of their lives- Benjamin Gitlow
similar to the above written by one of the founders of the cpusa.
He knew all the leaders of the Socialist Left in America and
