Socialism and Democracy is looking for someone to review THE HISTORIOGRAPHY OF COMMUNISM by Michael Brown. This is a very difficult, but important book that we'd like to find a reviewer for. Brown's treatment of Communist historiography crosses the disciplines of sociology, history, philosophy and literary criticism. Brown's book analyzes the relationship between social movements, ideology and the process of incorporating the history of the socialist movements of the twentieth century into the study of progressive movements without offering simple moral judgments of good verses evil to establish an essentialism of the "good" left as if this were somehow possible. The book requires a close and careful reading of the U.S. communist party and other left organizations and the role these formations played in the U.S. progressive movements.
