The Strangest Dream: Canadian Communists, the Spy Trials, and the Cold War

Merrily Weisbord

The Strangest Dream, one of the most eloquent books written about Canadian communists, is available to readers once again. A new preface and additional material written for this edition includes impassioned responses to the first edition and describes contemporary events which are eerily reminiscent of the red-baiting of an earlier time.
