Hardboiled Activist

Some critics and biographers of Dashiell Hammett, author of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man, claim that evidence of his Marxism can be found in his stories and novels. This new study, by conducting an extensive survey of his short stories (published and unpublished), novels and screen stories, demonstrates that it was only at the end of his writing career that Hammett embraced Marxism, which was--almost literally--a lifesaver for him.
