Reviewed by Paul W. Blackstock and Frank L. Schaf[1]

This handbook consists of a compilation of 663 organizations or projects and 122 publications declared to be Communist-front or outright Communist enterprises in official statements by federal agencies, and 155 organizations and 25 publications cited to be Communist or Communist-front by state or territorial investigating committees. Outright Communist enterprises and Communist-front organizations are defined in the introduction to the guide. The need for this guide and the Subversive Activities Control Board (SACB) has been questioned since mid-1971, and received publicity with the appointment of Otto Otepka to SACB after his suspension from a State Department security post. The board was established in 1973.
