For his political activities and as the co-founder of The National Guardian, a radical weekly newspaper. Belfrage belonged to the American Communist Party for a short period of time in 1937. The subject of the biography, Claude Williams, was a Cumberland Presbyterian minister, who is better known for his political and labor activism. He took his understanding of the Social Gospel to an activist level beyond what most clergy do. His involvement in politics and labor led to his dismissal as an ordained clergyman in the 1950's, about the time he was called before the House Un-american Acitivities Committee. It was not his first accusation of being a communist. His ordination was reinstated before his death. ; 9.13 X 6.57 X 1.11 inches
