During his lifetime, he wrote more than 80 books, including Conceived in Liberty, mostrar mais The Unvanquished, Citizen Tom Paine, Freedom Road, April Morning, The Immigrants, Second Generation, The Establishment, The Legacy, and Greenwich. He won the Stalin International Peace Prize in 1953. A member of the Communist party, he served three months in a federal prison in 1950 for refusing to testify about his political activity. Blacklisted as a result, he founded his own publishing house, Blue Heron Press, which released his novel Spartacus in 1951. In 1957, he wrote a book about his political experiences entitled The Naked God. He also wrote a series of detective stories under the name E. V. Cunningham.

2 stories both flawed a bit by 70,s era dialogue but with interesting plotting

The revolts of the slaves trapped in the Roman Empire have been a fertile ground for leftish writers. Howard Fast's take on the last big save revolt, is competent, but I prefer the version by Alfred Duggan, or the rather sentimental film script by Dalton Trumbo.

Good book but ended on a surprisingly downbeat feel. Actually, the whole thing was pretty downbeat, which isn't a huge surprise given the content, but usually these books pull it back up into happy land for the ending. I think I respect the writer more for keeping it like this.

Este es un magnifico canto a la libertad del pueblo judio, protagonizado por los hijos de matatias, adon del pueblo de Modin. Los cinco 'gloriosos hermanos' encabezan la rebelion contra las tropas sirio-griegas a las ordenes de Antioco IV (175-164 a.e, un monarca que pretendia gobernar Judea segun los esquemas helenisticos, y que habia abolido la tradicional teocracia que permitia a los judios gozar de una relativa autonomia. Una lucha larga y dura que pondra a prueba la unidad de todo un pueblo, y que por primera vez en su larga historia estara a punto de provocar la desaparicion del judaismo.El gran merito de esta obra reside en su autenticidad. Sin pretensiones maniqueas y con una honestidad a toda prueba, Fast plantea la busqueda de la libertad como una necesidad vital para la supervivencia de los oprimidos, y analiza minuciosamente las campanas militares, los conflictos personales y politicos de los lideres, la asimilacion del helenismo por parte de los judios ricos de Jerusalen, y el excepcional drama que surge del enfrentamiento entre dos modos tan dispares de entender el mundo, la sociedad y la religion.… (mais)
