Synopsis: Using both American and Russian archival evidence, this work examines the political life of Earl Browder, a man whose failure contributed to the demise of the popularity of the communist party in the United States.

Review: Native Kansan Earl Browder brought a midwestern twang to American Communism, leading the Party's U.S. branch from 1932 to 1945, but his individualistic streak was also his downfall.

James G. Ryan follows Browder's career through his adolescent canvasing for Socialist presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs and imprisonment for pacifist resistance to World War I to his rise through the ranks of the CPUSA and guidance of the party during the Popular Front years. Although he professed loyalty to Stalin, Browder believed that he could step away from the party line; by the end of World War II, his mistaken belief would result in a Stalin-sanctioned ouster. Ryan's biography ably delineates how, more than anyone else, Browder had--but ultimately mishandled--the chance "to weld the best of Communism with the best of the American tradition."
