United We Fall
Douglas Hyde
Ampersand Books, 3s. 6d.

Mr Hyde was a member of the Communist Party for twenty years; he has now turned to hysterical anti-communist exposure-mongering. The value of the book can be judged by his claims that the British Shop Stewards Movement is ‘Communist-led’, and that modern Communist Parties follow closely the teachings of Lenin. Mr Hyde teaches us only one thing, about the Communist Party – its total failure to train its members in political analysis and judgment.
