Abstract. The author analyzes modern American historiography of the USA Communist Party. The American historiography of Сommunism and the Left is marked by revisionistic character. The American historiography of Сommunism develops as an interdisciplinary project. The historians in the USA gave up “great narratives” in history writing. They also treat skeptically the “general history” of American Сommunism. American historians actively use intellectual history, history of ideas, and regional history methods.

Key words: historiography, American Communism, the Left, CPUSA, revisionism.
