265 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but the dustjacket all along the top edge is very worn and frayed. POLITICS. For those Americans who chose to become Communists, their discovery of and commitment to the Party was the most stirring, consuming event of their lives, similar in its joys and agonies to the one great, unforgettable and irrecoverable romance of a lifetime. Yet until Vivian Gornick's The Romance of American Communism, most of what has been written about these men and women has ignored their flesh and blood humanity to focus almost exclusively on politics and ideology. It is now time for another, more personal look. (Key Words: American Communism, Vivian Gornick, Politics, Ideology, United States Communist Party).
