    Nay, but I'd start with the History of the Communist Party of the United States if you want a general overview of the history of the US left (since, as noted, it doesn't just deal with the CPUSA's history but also covers the 19th century as well as the Socialist Party.)

    Scanned a Soviet book titled USA: Imperialists and Anti-Imperialists.

    From the back of the dust jacket:
    This book examines the social-Darwinist sociology of William G. Sumner, the 'cosmic philosophy' of John Fiske, the Anglo-Saxon concept of John W. Burgess, the sea power doctrine of Alfred T. Mahan, and the theosophy of Josiah Strong. An analysis is given of the battle of ideas that erupted over the topic of colonial expansion and imperialist wars, of the platform and influence of the American Anti-Imperialist League, the forces behind its rise and its relatively rapid eclipse. Anti-war and anti-colonial sentiments are examined in the context of the anti-monopoly and class struggles in the USA at the turn of the century.
    In other words, it talks about the emergence of the US as an imperialist power circa 1900 and how this was reflected in American politics.

    I've scanned and added two more books:

    * 200 Years of U.S. Constitutionalism: An Analysis of Basic Premises (two Soviet authors discuss the theoretical underpinnings of the US Constitution, how it has been judicially interpreted since then, and how it operates in practice.)

    * U.S. Labor and the Vietnam War (discusses the role of organized labor in helping the anti-war movement, alongside efforts by the White House and pro-war labor leaders to convince workers to do otherwise.)
    * h0m0revolutionary: "neo-liberalism can deliver healthy children, it can educate them, it can feed them, it can clothe them and leave them fully contented."
    * rooster: "Supporting [anti-imperialism] is reactionary. How is any nation supposed to stand up [to] the might of the US anyway?"
