About this Item

288 pages. Reference notes. Index. DJ has wear, soiling, and notations on DJ flap. Edges soiled. Some endpaper discoloration. Name in ink on fep. James S. "Jim" Allen, born Sol Auerbach (1906-1986), was an American Marxist historian, journalist, editor, activist, and functionary of the Communist Party USA. Allen is best remembered as the author and editor of over two dozen books and pamphlets and as one of the party's leading experts on African-American history. Allen is credited with helping to save from execution the young black men charged in the Scottsboro case by his prompt and relentless publicity of the case, which helped make their trial a cause célèbre. From 1951, Allen was working for International Publishers (IP). The author had a documented political perspective. The Dust Jacket text asserted that "The big monopolies of the United States have moved into he atom bomb business, and here is a book which tells exactly how, where, and when. This first detailed study of the weapons cartel traces monopoly control of this new industry from the raw materials to finished product.". Bookseller Inventory # 74323
