Sample text

The Comintern's 1912 order that the American Communist party end its underground existence reflected its judgment that the American movement, in an excess of conspiratorial zeal, had placed too many of its assets in the underground. The Comintern view was that, given the freedom of American society, the bulk of the Communist movement could operate openly with only necessarily covert activities assigned to the underground.

The Popular Front bodies so painstakingly built up in the 1930s collapsed under the weight of the new Communist policies. The League of American Writers lost so many of its prominent members that its letterhead had to be discarded. So many liberal members abandoned the Background American League for Peace and Democracy (formerly the American League against War and Fascism) that it simply dissolved.

Immediately after World War 11, membership in the CPUSA was seventy thousand; by 1956, it had dropped to twelve thousand, and in 1958, following Khrushchev's speech and the Hungarian Revolution, membership plummeted to three thousand. In 1959 Gus Hall, a Soviet loyalist trained at the International Lenin School in Moscow, replaced the ailing Eugene Dennis as CPUSA general secretary. Under Hall the party continued to limp along, sustained by its hard-core loyalists and by secret Soviet subsidies, earning a reputation as the most slavishly pro-Soviet Communist party in the industrialized world.
