Standing fast by Harvey Swados( Book )

10 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A masterful novel of political progressives making their way and not in an ever-changing postwar America. For Marty Dworkin and his band of young Trotskyist dreamers in Buffalo, New York, the vision of a just, socialist world crumbles with the rise of Stalin and the chaos of World War II. In the two decades that follow, Dworkin and his idealistic colleagues strive to establish a new political party and battle through unexpected trials with family, work, aging, and the changing world. They run up against an increasingly conservative America and a thriving materialism directly opposed to their own fervent beliefs. They emerge humbled, but still hopeful, into the 1960s, when civil rights struggles and anti-war radicalism move to center stage. Standing Fast is a classic, panoramic portrait of life amid the shattered dreams and visionary ambitions of the American left

Brothers Leo and Max Land came to America from Romania in 1911, but they took different paths in pursuit of the American dream.

Now, after the death of both brothers, Leo's three sons--the only surviving heirs--learn that they stand to inherit a fortune. As they battle for control, they come to expose their own deeply complicated visions of success in America.
