JF Ptak Science Books Quick Post
This is a very quick post on an arresting cover graphic for a pamphlet by the ubiquitous William Z. Foster. At the time he was the chair of the Communist Party U.S.A. (1945-1957) which was a desperately weird time to be in charge of anything Commie in the U.S. Foster was a more "centrist" radical labor organizer (if there is such a thing) before joining the Communist Party in 1919, jumping ship from the Wobblies and the Socialist Party. He stayed with The Party until the end, when h died in Moscow in 1961, 60 years into his career. In any event, this is an interesting cover of a very hard sale to make in the U.S. in 1946.
