Overview

The Naked Communist was a best seller in the early 1960s, selling more than 1.5 million copies. It found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across America and overseas in Spanish and excerpted in other languages. In this hard-hitting book an urgent need is finally fulfilled. In one exciting, readable volume, the incredible story of Communism is graphically told.

The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than a hundred books and treatises on Communism, many written by Marxist authors. We see the Communist the way he sees himself---stripped of propaganda and pretense. Hence the title, "The Naked Communist." Here is explained Communism's amazing appeal, its history, and its basic and unchanging concepts---even its secret time-table of conquest! Vital questions are clearly answered---

• Who gave Russia the A-bomb?
• How did the FBI fight the battle of the underground?
• 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?

Editorial Reviews

Host of the nationally syndicated “Glenn Beck Radio Program” - Glenn Beck
"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."
Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - J. Edgar Hoover
"I feel certain that your efforts on this important subject (communism) will receive widespread attention and consideration."
President of “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints” - David O. McKay
"I admonish everybody to read that [The Naked Communist] excellent book of Chief Skousen’s."
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."

Meet the Author

W. Cleon Skousen is best remembered as a popular author, speaker and teacher who lectured in every state and province in North America, and in more than 60 countries world-wide. He was a student of history and a scholar of law, specializing in the principles of Freedom, the U.S. Constitution, economics, and ancient history and scriptures.

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 in the FBI for 16 years, four years as Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, 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.

Dr. Skousen was born in Canada, and returned to the U.S. with his family at age ten. He spent two years in Mexico, two years in England, graduated from San Bernardino College in California, and received his juris doctor degree from George Washington University Law School. He was admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia and before the District Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

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.

Mr. Skousen and his wife, Jewel Pitcher of San Bernardino, California, are the parents of eight children, 50 grandchildren, and more than 120 great-grandchildren.

    Should be mandatory reading for every student!

    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.

    Prophetic

    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".
