Barr Carr, La Trobe University, “Red New York: US Communism and Émigré Latin American Revolutionaries and Communists 1925-1936”

This chapter looks at the development of transnational networks among radicals, revolutionaries, exiles and vanguard intellectuals in the Greater Circum-Caribbean during the years between the two world wars (1918-1939). I am especially interested in the roles played by certain hub cities in the networks formed by the groups in Mexico City, Havana (Cuba) and New York City.
