TL;DR: The American Communism and Anticommunism: A Historian's Bibliography and Guide to the Literature as discussed by the authors contains over 10,000 entries, most annotated, is extensively topically subdivided, and is particularly strong on anti-Communism.
Abstract: The subject of the annual Bibliography is the English language scholarly literature of U.S. Communism, supplemented by citations from serious non-scholarly journals, journals of opinion, obituaries, etc. The literature “of” Communism includes not only material directly about Communism, but selected materials overlapping with, tangential or adjacent to the subject of U.S. Communism; or otherwise of close interest to scholars of Communism. This broad approach is especially necessary as the “classical” era of Communism (1919-1991) recedes into the past. While research output directly about U.S. Communism per se may have declined, nevertheless, scholarship related to U.S. Communism continues, and has broadened its disciplinary, topical, and theoretical approaches. Anticommunism also receives extensive coverage. Reviews are excluded. Informational annotations are provided where a work’s title does not convey its chronological or geographical scope, key personal or corporate names, subject or relevance. For most edited monographs, and for some single-author monographs, the table of contents and/or the author’s or publisher’s abstract are provided, when available and appropriate. An outstanding cumulative bibliography, through 2008, is John Earl Haynes’ American Communism and Anticommunism: A Historian’s Bibliography and Guide to the Literature. It contains over 10,000 entries, most annotated, is extensively topically subdivided, and is particularly strong on anti-Communism. Researchers are strongly urged to make use of it.

TL;DR: Draper as discussed by the authors traces the evolution of the American Communist Party in America from its early background through its founding in 1919 to its emergence as a legal entity in the 1920s and traces the native and foreign strains that comprised the party.
Abstract: In this definitive history of the evolution of the Communist Party in America - from its early background through its founding in 1919 to its emergence as a legal entity in the 1920s - Theodore Draper traces the native and foreign strains that comprised the party. He emphasizes its shifting policies and secrets as well as its open activities. He makes clear how the party in its infancy \"was transformed from a new expression of American radicalism to the American appendage of a Russian revolutionary power,\" a fact that Draper develops in his succeeding volume, American Communism and Soviet Russia. In his special, prescient way, Theodore Draper himself had the final words on American Communism: \"It is like a museum of radical politics. In its various stages, it has virtually been all things to all men...There are many ways of trying to understand such a movement, but the first task is historical. In some respects, there is no other way to understand it, or at least to avoid seriously misunderstanding it. Every other approach tends to be static, one-sided or unbalanced.\" Draper correctly notes that the formative period of the American Communist movement has remained a largely untold and even unknown story. In part, the reasons for this are that the Communist movement, although a child of the West, grew to power in the Soviet East. But Draper rescues this chapter with deep appreciation for the fact that communism was not something that happened just in Russia, but also in the United States. This is a must read for scholars and lay-persons alike. Both The Roots of American Communism and American Communism and Soviet Russia were commissioned by the Fund for the Republic series on Communism in American Life edited by Clinton Rossiter.
