Twentieth Century Radicalism in Minnesota Oral History Project: Interview with Paul M. Buhle
Part 1


Part 2


Description BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Paul Buhle is a historian of the Left in the U.S. He directed the Oral History of the American Left Project (headquartered at the Tamiment Library in New York), and the Oral History of Rhode Island Labor. He has published several books, including Marxism in the United States (1987), and Working for Democracy: American Workers from the Revolution to the Present (1985), co-edited with Alan Dawley. Buhle himself was an active participant in the New Left. SUBJECTS DISCUSSED: The interview touches on how Buhle became interested in the history of the Left; how he defines the Left; and his observations about radicalism among members of different ethnic groups. The interview was taped when Salerno was beginning a series of oral history interviews, so Buhle offers many practical hints on conducting oral history interviews. They discuss some of the controversies then current in the field as well. COMMENTS ON INTERVIEW: The quality of the tape recording is generally good. Some small talk about mutual acquaintances and current events was omitted from the transcript.
