These two volumes (1200 pages) represent a tour de force of Leftist exegesis. And for all its ponderousness it is an eminently readable work, filled with facts and arresting interpretations. Mr. Weisbord closes with chapters on the rôle of Communism in the United States and on the necessity of the "Fourth International's" taking up the torch of world revolution, cast away by Stalin.
