J. Edgar Hoover On Communism- Signed J. Edgar Hoover 1969 Random House, NY 1st edition A record of Hoover's stance, on American Communism. The book is a compilation of previous published items and speeches, arranged "catechistically" ("What is Communism?" "How Communism Works," etc.), and preceded by a short essay on the current state of the American Communist Party and its progress toward fomenting  revolution. Readers of Masters of Deceit and the newspapers will already know that Hoover considers the CP a serious threat. They may be interested to learn, however, that he sees its basic problem as being the same faced by the major political parties: "the big debate in the Party today is how to make communism more attractive, especially to young people." He considers the Party torn between its new-found image of respectability and the temptation to go "left" (as far, say, as the black militants and the New Left) in order to attract the unruly young activists.
