Product description


Richard Gid Powers author of "Not Without Honor: The History of American Anticommunism" A fresh and original (as well as thoroughly researched and intellectually rigorous) new look at the life and times of Joe McCarthy, one that will challenge the conventional wisdom of both right and left.


Senator Joseph McCarthy is remembered as a self-serving and hypocritical man who recklessly destroyed people's lives through anticommunist witch hunting. This re-evaluation shows that the more that is learnt about communism in America, the more McCarthy is proven to be accurate in his charges.
