Item #2353 W.Z. Foster: Renegade or Spy. Arnold Petersen.

W.Z. Foster: Renegade or Spy

New York: New York Labor News Co., 1945. 4th Printing.

12mo (7 1/4 x 5 inches; 184 x 126 mm), 39, [9] pages, in stapled wrappers (soft cover).

Ferocious attack on William Z. Foster, a longtime senior official of the Communist Party, who gets tagged as a "war monger," "liberty bond salesman," "fraud," "Anarchist microbe," "mediocre personality," and similar terms of endearment. The Socialist Labor Party, which the author led, was a bitter foe of the Communists.

This pamphlet was originally issued in 1932. Our copy is the 4th printing from August 1945, presumably updated because the Communist Party ousted Earl Browder as leader and installed William Z. Foster to succeed him.

CONDITION: Vertical crease, probably from mailing, ink smudges to lower wrapper, but internally clean and unmarked. About Very Good. Item #2353

Price: $20.00
