It is a good read, but it is fiction. First of all, the American Communist Party (the proper name) had already been dissolved and melded into the Neoconservative movement by then.
Secondly, crap like this:
"Finally, to destroy our culture, they needed us to abandon our heritage of religion and morality. They believed the homosexual movement, if accepted, would begin to effectively extinguish these values."
Right out of the Neocon/Evangelical playbook.
I think Bowers made a gread financial ploy, but that's abbout it. If he was really 'rooting' out communism, he would have started in DC and people like Dick Cheney.
"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
