NOT a review 5 Sept. 2011
By Howard Beatman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have NOT read this book and make no judgements about it as a whole, but I would like to amplify the author's statement that H. Bruce Franklin's analysis of Robert Heinlein was "Marxist". I took a college class from Franklin in 1974 - the man was a damn Maoist (when it was still possible to be a Maoist)!
