PUBLIC LIBRARY In connection with the publication of the Fish report on Communist activi ties in the United States, the Public Library calls attention to the following books: The report on the Investigation of Communist propaganda may be con sulted in the reference room of the central building at Eighth and K streets or at the major branches. The Theory of Communism^ Communism, by H. J. Laski. 1927. JI-L33. “The study of the essential principles Os communism has a special value be cause it compels us to submit more orthodox doctrines to a closer examina tion than they are wont to receive. It Is a warning to us not to confound .. . the institutions to which we are ac customed with the necessary founda tions of society.” Manifesto of the Communist Party, by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. 1915. JI-M349. Modern communism goes back to the I "manifesto” issued by Karl Marx in | 1813 as a party prog: am for the ‘ Com- j munist League.'' With the publication of the ’ manifesto” communism became crystallized as a working-class move ment as distinct from socialism, a middle-class movement. The Conquest of Bread, by Prince P. A. Kropotkin. 1907. JI-K927C-E. The theory of communism expounded by the great Russian thinker whose name is most intimately associated with the idealistic conception of beneficial revolution and the reorganization of society. Communism in the United States. The Communistic Societies of the United States, by Charles Nordhoff. 1875. JI-N75. Experiments in the application of Communistic theory to everyday life are not new in America. This is an almost contemporary account of the famous communities of Separatists, Shakers, the Oneida Community and others which flourished during the middle of the nineteenth century. American Communism, a Critical Analy sis of Its Origins, Development and Programs, by James Oneal. 1927. JH-On2. ‘‘The rapid and frequent changes by Communist organizations in their ma neuvering to establish contacts with other organizations have made the his tory of American communism complex and subject to misunderstanding. As a phase of social, political and economic history, the movement is especially in teresting as a study in psychology, hav ing its immediate origins in the greatest war in all history.” How Red Is America? by Will Irwin. 1927. JH-Ir94h. A disinterested attempt to present the evidence without recourse to emphasis or distortion. The author sees the Com munist movement as a noteworthy but not particularly alarming socio-political manifestation of questionable vitality. Communism in Action. Soviet Russia, by W. H. Chamberlin. 1930. F5466-C3SS. “Not one of these ‘Me and Russia' affairs.” but the most comprehensive and informative history of the Soviet Union yet published. Mr. Chamberlin, as a correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, has lived in Russia for the last eight years and has, there fore, been an eyewitness to the turbu lent economic upheaval. He emphasizes its experimental nature unless the co operation of the peasantry as well as the proletariat can be secured. The book is entirely objective in tone and open-minded in its conclusions. Russia: Todav and Yesterday, by E. J. Dillon. 1930. G54-Dsß6r. Written by an Englishman who has known Russia intimately as student, university professor and journalist for over 50 years, this book contrasts the old with the new regime. Without prejudice, the author admits a certain enthusiasm for Bolshevist reforms, but maintains a wise' balance throughout his account of the changes in govern ment, industry, education, amusement, the arts, the status of women, etc. Humanity Uprooted, by Maurice Hindus. 1929. F5466-Hsß3h. The ‘‘uprooting,” intentional and un intentional, of such institutions as the home, religion and private property by the present Soviet government; its ef fect upon various groups of the Rus sian population—peasants, proletariat. Intelligentsia, youth, woman. Commun ists, etc.; and a few chapters on the quests of its revolutionary leaders are presented graphically by this author who has revisited his homeland annu ally for the last five years. There is deep human understanding, but also a refusal to pass judgment upon the present experiment. Hammer and the Scythe, by Mrs. A O. McCormick. 1928. G54-Ml36h. Reporting without bias her visit to I Russia in the Summer of 1927 in arti- \ cles for the New York Times, Mrs. Mc- Cormick succeeded so well in penetrat- | ing the spirit of Communist reform that j this book, named after the Soviet em blem, is considered one of the most en lightened of American “rapid-fire” surveys. New Russia, by Dorothy Thompson. 1928. F5466-T376n. Another journalistic and impartial account. Os interest especially in its • analysis of foreign trade possibilities; j In its diagnosis of the cult of Leninism | in place of Christianity; and in its use of the plots of novels, plays and short j stories to furnish the key to the in- j terpretation of Russian life. Like Mrs. > McCormick, Miss Thompson hesitates j to recommend the Communist brand of • emancipation for women in the chapter ; “Lame Eros.” Marine Corps Notes Brig. Gen. Robert H. Dunlap, who has been temporarily attached to corps headquarters, has been designated as the general of the line of the corps to attend the 1931 course at the French •ichool of War. Ecole de Guerre, Paris, France. Maj. C. J. Miller, who has just •♦turned to this country after a tour CT service In the tropics, has also been designated to attend the school.
