BookNews
One of the most active and visible communists of his era, Novack (1905-92) collected essays on various aspects of US history that had appeared over the course of 40 years in the International Socialist Review and its predecessor periodicals, most of them written by him. They cover Native Americans, the first American revolution, the slavocracy, the second American revolution encompassing the Civil War and Reconstruction, the triumph of monopolists, and the first wave of feminism. Among specific topics discussed from the Marxist viewpoint are the destruction of Indian democracy, class forces in the American revolutions, homage to antislavery fighter John Brown, two lessons of Reconstruction, big business and the two-party system, and how women won the vote.
