An Evil Tree: The Story of Communism

An Evil Tree: The Story of CommunismAn Evil Tree: The Story of Communism by Agnes Murphy

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A friend let me borrow this book to read. It was published in 1961. A short book with little information that I did not already know. This book lists the roots of communism, w which are: atheism, dialectical materialism, naturalism, and class struggle. The author goes on to explain the planting of the tree of communism in a country is revolution with the trunk of the tree being the dictatorship of the proletariat. The author explains the flowering of the tree of communism is the classes society. Section Two of the book discusses the makers of communism including Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. The last section of the books introduces how the communist use youth to bring in the political system in a nation. The main point that made me give this book a low rating was its lack of footnotes.Where did the author get his information?

One interesting observation I took away from this book was how many of the things that communism tries to do I can see happening here in our great nation. It is something we all need to be aware of and study those run for office to make sure we are voting for those who will stand on the principles our country was founded.

If you are interested in communism and how it has effected the USA this would be a book you might like to read.
