Hi, I have been reading several books on this lately. I started with Diana West's "American Betrayal," St Martins Press (2013) and my world view of the US and the world has been altered completely. What she has written has shaken me to my core and it explains much about our current circumstances in the US. This book led me to read Whittaker Chambers' book "Witness," about the Alger Hiss/Whittaker Chambers trial in 1948 and the inquiries into Communist infiltration of US government starting in the FDR administration from 1933 forward. From there I decided to read J Edgar Hoover's book "Masters of Deceit." That led me to POST THIS THREAD. Ha, reading chapter 9 is like reading about Scientology. It is absolutely astounding how Communism and Scientology are almost identical in their treatment of members. If I had it to do over, I would read J Edgar Hoover's book first, then Whittaker Chambers' book then Diana West's book. In fact I believe I will reread Diana West now, as I have a better understanding of Communism now.
