Standing fast by Harvey Swados( Book )

10 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and held by 479 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

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.
