[003502] Russell, Charles Edward. Bolshevism and the United States. Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1919. First Edition. 8vo. Hardback. Good / Fair. [10], 341pp, [1], original cloth in DJ.

DJ browned, lightly foxed, chipping to spine ends with small amount of loss, large closed tear at head to joint between front panel and spine, tape ‘repairs’ to reverse, book with fading to spine where DJ was chipped, a few spots of foxing to edges of text block, otherwise fairly clean.

Seidman notes that “Chapter 12 (pp. 296-326), devoted to the rise and progress of American Bolshevism, lists socialists, pacifists, labor sympathizers, liberal intellectuals, anarchists, and the IWW as potential Bolsheviks here. To combat Bolshevism, Russell proposes fairer distribution of the product of industry and fairer recognition of labor in government”.
