Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In American Anticommunism Heale examines the various forms American reactions to this perceived threat have taken, from the attacks on workers in the Haymarket Riot to the widespread "witch hunts" of Senator Joe McCarthy.

Book News Annotation:

Heale (history, U. of Lancaster, England) shows how fears of foreign ideologies and suspicion of 19th-century immigrant groups helped shape American communism during the age of industrialization. He then examines the period from the 1930s to the 1960s, when class conflict abated but politicians and bureaucrats had their own reasons for embracing a zealous anti-communism.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
