Book Review: No Way But This: In search of Paul Robeson by Jeff Sparrow

Paul Robeson in Proud Valley

READ WITH GREAT SKEPTICISM. MR. SPARROW GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO SLANDER COMRADE STALIN. HIS SOURCES LACK CREDIBILITY.

Professor Grover Furr’s newest book, “STALIN…waiting for the truth is available for purchase on Amazon by following this link: https://www.amazon.com/Stalin-Waiting-Truth-Grover-Furr/dp/0578445530/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=STALIN…WAITING+FOR+THE+TRUTH&qid=1553526365&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull

This book is a response to Stephen Kotkin’s book, “Stalin: waiting for Hitler.” Professor Furr exposes Kotkin as another mouthpiece of imperialism and anti-communism in the tradition of Robert Conquest’s cold war phony research. Kotkin’s objective is revealed here. He is attempting to create an anti-Stalin narrative within the left of the United States and Great Britain. Any honest leftist interested in learning the truth about Stalin’s role in building socialism and working for peace and security following World War II should read Furr’s book. It is excellent and well researched. Turns out that Stalin was not the monster portrayed by Kotkin and the other cold warriors. He was a man of peace, dignity, and integrity. Hats off to Grover Furr for a job well done!
