Red Fascism Boring from within…by the Subversive Forces of Communism Shut-The-Boox™

If you’re using this Shut-The-Boox™ for a drinking game, which we recommend, we suggest using vodka in honor of the book’s former subject matter. You’re welcome.

Jack B. Tenney was a California senator during much of the 1940s and early 1950s. Also known as California’s McCarthy, Tenney was a leader in the “anti-subversive” movement and, for a time, the head of the state’s Un-American Activities Committee. Tenney compiled this work to present his findings from State and Federal investigations of Communist and Marxist organizations in this country. Communism is a utopian philosophy in direct conflict with capitalism. I spent my teen years in the 80s, which was kind of the 2nd Golden Age of the Red Scare. My AP European History class took a trip to Russia; I couldn’t afford to go 🙁  They all took Levi’s to trade for stuff.

Ok, this may have been too cool of a book for a Shut-The-Boox™ in that it just looks so damn interesting! My bad. That said, it’s absolutely beautiful. A deep red cloth cover with some of the coolest type/fonts in black on the spine and front cover. There’s some wear on the edges and discoloring on the hinges, but heck, it’s 70 years old! It’s in great shape for its age.
