Recommended to David by: Picked myself
Recommended for: Americans who do not understand our socialist history
Read 2 times. Last read September 8, 2013 to September 12, 2013.

September 3 - 9, 2011: The fact that socialism is less embraced and more talked about these days is quite enlightening. This book is a must read for people interested in the history of socialism in America.

September 8, 2013: Started reading this again. I will make an attempt to give a more thorough review this time. . .

This is a powerful book. I especially love the chapter on A. Philip Randolph; America needs another like him.

After reading this for the second time, I am more convinced than ever that socialism is indeed a truly American ideal. This should be a high school textbook.
