RONALD RADOSH was the first writer to establish the guilt of Julius Rosenberg in his bestselling The Rosenberg File. He is also the author of several other books including Commies: A Journey Through the Old Left, the New Left and the Leftover Left.
Until now, Hollywood’s political history has been dominated by a steady stream of films and memoirs decrying the nightmare of the Red Scare. But Ronald and Allis Radosh show that the real drama of that era lay in the story of the movie stars, directors and especially screenwriters who joined the Communist Party or traveled in its orbit.
Filled with anecdote and personality and also with hard won insights into the destructive nature of the radical project, Commies is a moving story of growing up in the other America of the left and finding the way home at last.
