From the publisher's description: "Ryan's comprehensive biography sheds new light on both the life of Earl Browder and the workings of the Communist party in the United States during its peak of popularity. His research suggests that Browder's life represents a middle ground between two competing interpretations of the party. The traditional view, developed in the 1950's, has stressed the Soviet-dominated mind-set of CP leaders. By contrast, the revisionist school, dominant among academic historians between 1975 and 1995, has empasized home-grown roots and domestic concerns. Ryan shows convincingly that Browder blended elements of both, thus calling for a new view of American Communism during this period."
