THE RED NETWORK: A "Who's Who" and Handbook of Radicalism and Patriots

Kenilworth, Illinois and Chicago: Published by the Author, 1934. Hardcover. Third printing. Beginning in early 1933, Dilling (1894-1966) spent twelve to eighteen hours a day for eighteen months researching and cataloging suspected subversives. Her sources included the 1920 four-volume report of the Joint Legislative Committee to Investigate Seditious Activities, and Representative Hamilton Fish's 1931 report of an anti-communist investigation. The result was this self-published work, which was distributed by the KKK, the Knights of the White Camellia, the German-American, and the Aryan Bookstores. The first half of the book consists of a collection of essays, mostly copied from Red Revolution. The second half contains descriptions of more than 1,300 "Reds" (including international figures such as Albert Einstein and Chiang Kai-shek), and more than 460 organizations described as "Communist, Radical Pacifist, Anarchist, Socialist, [or] I.W.W. controlled." 352 p. Octavo. Original red cloth binding, with black titles. Light wear to the corners and tips; otherwise very good. Very good. Item #72689
