Reds in America is an anti-communist book by newspaper journalist Richard M. Whitney. The book was an exposé of the American communist movement based upon documents seized by the Justice Department in a raid upon a secret convention of the Communist Party at Bridgman, Michigan August 22, 1922.

J. Edgar Hoover provided Whitney with photo-static copies of documents seized in the raid. Hoover also allowed Whitney access to Justice Department files to write his book.[1]

Reds in America was initially published in 1924 by The Beckwith Company of New York. In 1970 the book was reprinted by Western Islands Publishers the publishing arm of the John Birch Society.
