My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“The Communist” is a well-documented, highly readable, and further Cold War insight with modern-day relevance by one of our premier scholars, Dr. Paul Kengor, Professor at Grove City College and Director of the Center for Vision and Values. This, with his previous book, “Dupes,” firmly establishes Dr. Kengor as a top historian and writer for Cold War politics and its continuing impact on our nation today.
While deeply disturbing, as it unveils the relationship of the current president’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, this is far from a right-wing diatribe on leftism. It is, however, a studied history on the early influences of Soviet era espionage and influence on American life that continues to our own day. It is a book that deserves reading. Like everything I have read of Paul Kengor, I couldn’t out it down.
I highly recommend it.
