Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This popular supplement combines a comprehensive essay on the history of McCarthyism with compelling documents that trace the course of anti-Communist furor in the US. The volume's 95-page essay follows the campaign against domestic subversion from its origins in the 1939s, through its escalation in the 1940s , to its decline in the 1950s. The second part includes more than 47 original documents (including 6 new sources) —congressional transcripts, FBI reports, speeches and letters—that chronicle the anti-Communist crusade. The essays and documents have been thoroughly updated to reflect new scholarship and recently revealed archival evidence of soviet spying in the US. Also included are headnotes, photographs, a glossary, a chronology of McCarthyism, a revised bibliographical essay, and an index.
