HAI Historians Carlisle and Lide Author New Complete Idiot’s Guide to Communism

Drs. Rodney Carlisle and James H. Lide of History Associates Incorporated (HAI) based in Rockville, Maryland, have authored  The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Communism. The popular  Complete Idiot’s Guide © (CIG)  series offers books with topics as disparate as vampires, investing, computers, and screenwriting. The  CIG to Communism  contains a complete examination of the ideology and history of one of the most powerful movements of the twentieth century, all with clear, understandable explanations and entertaining anecdotes and sidebars. Carlisle, an emeritus professor of history at Rutgers University and one of the founding members of HAI, is the author of more than a dozen other books on the history of science and technology and on political history, but writing  Communism  was a new experience for him. “We worked to condense the best of recent objective research on the topic to produce a readable, accurate, and balanced treatment accessible to the general reader,” Carlisle said.
