Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of The 5000 Year Leap, The Naked Capitalist and the original edition of The Naked Communist.

To date, The Naked Communist has sold almost two million copies and has found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across the United States. In one clarifying and readable volume, the whole story of communism is graphically told and includes the tragic histories of China, Korea, Russia, the UN, Alger Hiss, Whittaker Chambers, Elizabeth Bentley, General MacArthur, and others. National broadcaster Paul Harvey at CBS said, "I have never given any volume such an unqualified endorsement."

The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than one hundred books and treatises on communism, many written by Marxist authors. This text that reviewers have called "the most powerful book on communism since J. Edgar Hoover's Masters of Deceit" sees the communist as he sees himself - stripped of propaganda and pretense. Readers are offered an explanation of the appeal of communism, its history, its basic and unchanging concepts - even its secret timetable of conquest.

Among the many questions it answers are:
* Who gave the United States' nuclear secrets to the Russians?
* How did the FBI fight communism after it was forced underground in 1918?
* Why did the West lose 600 million allies after World War II?
* What really happened in Korea?
* What is communism's great secret weapon?
* Is there an answer to communism?
* What lies ahead?
* What can I do to stop communism?
* How can we stop communism without a major war?

**This edition of The Naked Communist has been updated for 2016. Included is a chapter on the 45 Communist Goals that details how 44 of those 45 goals have been achieved. Also new is a chapter about the making of The Naked Communist that sheds light on how this book has sold almost two million copies.

I feel certain that your efforts on this important subject (communism) will receive widespread attention and consideration.

United States Secretary of Agriculture under President Dwight D. Eisenhower - Ezra Taft Benson
We believe in a moral code. Communism denies innate right or wrong. As W. Cleon Skousen has said in his timely book, The Naked Communist: The communist 'has convinced himself that nothing is evil which answers the call of expediency.' This is a most damnable doctrine. People who truly accept such a philosophy have neither conscience nor honor. Force, trickery, lies, broken promises are wholly justified.

I read The Naked Communist and at the end of that Skousen predicted someday soon you won't be able to find the truth in schools or in libraries or anywhere else because it won't be in print anymore. You must collect those books. It's an idea I read from Cleon Skousen from The Naked Communist, and someday the history of this country's going to be lost because it's going to be hijacked by intellectuals and communists and everything else. And I think we there.

Meet the Author

W. Cleon Skousen was a world renowned teacher, lecturer and scholar for more than 60 years. Born in Raymond, Alberta, Canada on January 20, 1913, Dr. Skousen s growing up years were spent in Canada, Mexico, and California.

He attended college at the San Bernardino Junior College where he was elected Student Body President.

In 1934 he went to law school at George Washington University in Washington DC, where he earned his Juris Doctorate and was admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia. At this same time he was employed with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Dr. Skousen served the FBI for 16 years (1935-1951), and worked closely with J. Edgar Hoover including a hot-spot stint as the director of communications. In 1960 he began a speaking tour around the country addressing the important political issues facing America at that time. During this period, he averaged 300 speeches a year.

He was invited to write a new constitution for Canada and the proposed United States of Latin America, and he published a model constitution that could be adopted by nations everywhere. He served as Chief of Police in Salt Lake City for four years and ten years as a university professor. He was a prolific writer and produced three national best sellers, The Naked Communist, The Naked Capitalist, and The Five Thousand Year Leap. Eight of his books were used as college texts, and several were translated and published in other countries.

His seminars on the Constitution have been taught to several million across the U.S., and among his students were dozens of U.S. Senators and Representatives, two Supreme Court justices, and several candidates for President. He believed knowledge and understanding were key to maintaining a free country, and spent his entire adult life opening up complex issues for deeper understanding by students and audiences all around the world.

His many books and recordings addressed diverse subjects ranging from the raising of boys, to the principles of good government, to prophetic history. Dr. Skousen accumulated a wealth of knowledge and optimism information that he called the diamond dust of exciting history, natural law and eternal principles of hope. These principles he painstakingly distilled into the pages of over 40 books and pamphlets, to be shared in an exciting and inspirational manner. This is what made him so popular with audiences of millions around the world.

W. Cleon Skousen was an eye-witness to the near-catastrophic consequences for the world, of American-liberals' appeasement of Stalin, Kruschev, Mao and would-be communist dictators the world over as millions upon millions of innocent "non-believers" were slaughtered in the name of the "proletariat dictatorship" phase of the implementation of the "Communist World". He waded through mountains of communist propaganda and "teachings" to create the how/what/when/why of this vile "...conspiracy to enslave mankind" and to "...present the Communist in his true native elements, stripped of propaganda and pretense", hence the "Naked Communist". Written at the height of the "cold war" and thanks to the eye-witness accounts of an ever increasing number of disillusioned Communist officials who at the time were fleeing from behind "the iron curtain" Mr. Skousen presents us with the "naked" facts in a simple to read and understand format which, again, given the current situation in our country, makes this volume a must read. Unfortunately this version, or copy, contains many grammatical and spelling errors, as well as lots of missing words, but even so I found it to be easily read and understood.

Excellent history of communism and why the red scare wasn't just paranoia. Insightful and well written, I'd recommend this book.

This book was suggested by Dr. Ben Carson.  I have just begun and am already captivated by the  realism from 1958 when the book was written and the happenings in the world today.  May God help us all with what is going on in the world today both at home and abroad.

At nearly 65 I can remember much of what is described, and have also seen most of what has been predicted. A very scary book, but well done and easy to read. I will soon be reading "The Naked Capitalist".
