Love the Red Scare titles. This book is directed at high school students and presented in a question and answer format. (Reminds me of the way the Baltimore Catechism is set up, coincidence? hmmm) ALB has quite a few that have graced our website and every time I think everyone knows that the Soviet Union has undergone a few changes in the last few decades, yet another public library hangs on to one of these relics from the past. Of course this is worthy material for academic libraries and archives. But this has no business being a teen nonfiction collection in a modern public library or a school library. Every time I find one like this on the shelf I cringe at the idea of a teen running across this type of title and probably concluding that they don’t “know” anything or “have” anything. Okay. Whining done for now.
I did love looking through these pages and pictures and the helpful advice about identifying those crazy communists.
