    Default Raising Reds

    The full title of this book is: Raising Reds: The Young Pioneers, Radical Summer Camps, and Communist Political Culture in the United States



    This looks like a very interesting book. Here's a synopsis of it:

    In this book Paul Mishler examines how Communist parents attempted to rear their children in the cause closest to their hearts. Their ultimate social and political goals, and their sometimes contradictory desires as parents, Mishler shows, were reflected in the education and upbringing of their children. Mishler argues that these organizations and activities were used not only to help guarantee the future of radicalism in America, but also to elaborate Marxist ideas into a way of life and forge cohesion in the fractious Communist ranks. Along the way, Mishler describes how crucial Party debates--such as whether immigrants should assimilate or maintain their ethnic identities, the role of women in the Party, and the importance of African-American liberation--played out in raising radical children. Finally, Mishler turns to the production of Marxist music and literature for children to show how the arts were used to help create a complete radical education
    To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them.

    You can download the PDF of the book here.

    Let me know when you've downloaded it so I can remove the link.

    I don't know why I can't open the file by Foxit Reader. Maybe my window lacked fonts or something else.

    Please let me know if you can open it normally.

    And I will try update the Foxit Reader, too.

    Have you downloaded the file? If so you should be able to open it. I can do it with Adobe.
