Writing in the early 1950s, Cannon discusses how a proletarian party can resist the conservatizing pressures of the emerging capitalist expansion and anticommunist witch-hunt. He discusses Washington's failure to achieve its goals in the Korean War, why the rulers reined in McCarthyism, and how class-conscious workers under these conditions carried out effective union work and political activity to build a communist workers party.
