To date, The Naked Communist has sold almost two million copies and has found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across the United States. In one clarifying and readable volume, the whole story of communism is graphically told and includes the tragic histories of China, Korea, Russia, the UN, Alger Hiss, Whittaker Chambers, Elizabeth Bentley, General MacArthur, and others. National broadcaster Paul Harvey at CBS said, “I have never given any volume such an unqualified endorsement.”
The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than one hundred books and treatises on communism, many written by Marxist authors. This text that reviewers have called “the most powerful book on communism since J. Edgar Hoover’s Masters of Deceit” sees the communist as he sees himself – stripped of propaganda and pretense. Readers are offered an explanation of the appeal of communism, its history, its basic and unchanging concepts – even its secret timetable of conquest.
Among the many questions it answers are:
* Who gave the United States’ nuclear secrets to the Russians?
* How did the FBI fight communism after it was forced underground in 1918?
* Why did the West lose 600 million allies after World War II?
* What really happened in Korea?
* What is communism’s great secret weapon?
* Is there an answer to communism?
* What lies ahead?
* What can I do to stop communism?
* How can we stop communism without a major war?
**This edition of The Naked Communist has been updated for 2016. Included is a chapter on the 45 Communist Goals that details how 44 of those 45 goals have been achieved. Also new is a chapter about the making of The Naked Communist that sheds light on how this book has sold almost two million copies.
“The Naked Communist lays out the whole progressive plan. It is unbelievable how fast it has been achieved.”
~ Dr. Ben Carson, Surgeon, Philanthropist, Journalist
“No one is better qualified to discuss the threat to this nation from communism. You will be alarmed, you will be informed.”
~ Ronald Reagan, United States President
“Skousen predicted someday you won’t be able to find the truth anywhere because the history of this country is going to be hijacked by communists. I think we are there.”
~ Glenn Beck, radio host
“I feel certain that your efforts on this important subject (communism) will receive widespread attention and consideration.”
~ J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
“We believe in a moral code. Communism denies innate right or wrong. As W. Cleon Skousen has said in his timely book, The Naked Communist: The Communist ‘has convinced himself that nothing is evil which answers the call of expediency.’ This is a most damnable doctrine. People who truly accept such a philosophy have neither conscience nor honor. Force, trickery, lies, broken promises are wholly justified.”
~ Ezra Taft Benson, Secretary of Agriculture under President Dwight D. Eisenhower
