With a deep understanding born of first-hand experience, Mr. Shotwell takes us through his compelling story of his stepfatherÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs devotion to the anti-American Soviet cause; family friends who were entrenched in Soviet espionage; our nationÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs current self-destructive move toward progressivism, atheism and socialism; and his own ultimate emergence from leftist ideology. Shotwell describes the evolution of ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«economic MarxismÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ into its current guise ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«cultural Marxism,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ the early twentieth-century movement that resulted in the radical ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ60s and ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇ70s, and which profoundly affects us to this day. Immersed in Red displays an authority which can only be gained from having lived the lies and discovered the truth.
