This remarkable oral biography, recounted in collaboration with two historians, describes day-to-day life in the party and traces Nelson's career from his beginnings in the Pennsylvania coalfields to his secret work as a party courier in the Far East; from the battlefields of Civil War Spain to the jails of cold war Pittsburgh; and from a small group of Communist autoworkers in Detroit to the upper reaches of party leadership in New York.
