Masters of Deceit, was one of his books about communism, probably the
best known. I don't recall any others by him.

I don't know whether this holds true for American students, but when using
writings of J. Edgar Hoover in a class on anticommunism here in France,
students said, in essence, "Gosh, if that's what communism is about, Hoover
was right!" The colleague teaching the class decided to have students read
the Communist Manifesto and other classic texts of Marxism to counter this

One of them is _Masters of Deceit_. It was ghost-written for Hoover.

Naturally, not a single word should be accepted as truth!

The anti-Communism books by Hoover referred to by Nina Daneshvar

"The Story of Communism in America and How to Fight It" (actually
written by the Crime Records Division) 1958

"A Study in Communism"

"Communism: 1969"

I have not (and WILL not) read any of them. I found the titles in
William Turner's book "Hoover's FBI".
