American Communist, Socialist and Labor Publications
From the time of the Russian Revolution in 1917, a force within
the United States made up of European immigrants, the labor movement,
home-grown socialists, and the delusional, labored to bring about
a "worker's paradise" in the United States along the
lines of the Russian state.
An alliance of leftist groups under the leadership of the
Communist Party U.S.A. and taking their direction from Moscow
provided the direction of this movement, co-opting other organizations
Given the period of time that these documents cover, consistency
of position suffers, since the American revolutionaries had to
change their positions to adhere to the Russian "party line."
Sufficient literature exists about this red menace for historians
to have a specialty organization for the study of the communist
movement in the United States.
