A STUDY OF COMMUNISM [SIGNED]

New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1962. First Edition.

Written for the average reader on the aims and methods of Communism, discussing the economic, sociological, political and psychological origins of the movement and its attractions. Traces the perversion of the ideology in the hands of the Russians, the power struggle that followed, the attempts to communize the U.S. since Stalin's rise and fall, and how nationalism has thwarted Communism. Although it is now widely believed that most of Hoover's books were ghostwritten by FBI employees, the content undoubtedly reflects Hoover's views. Inscribed by J. Edgar Hoover, dated 9/62. Hardcover with dust jacket. 212 pages.
