McCarthyism, the Great American Red Scare, Paperback (December 1996)
An account of the period when Americans were routinely persecuted because they were suspected of being insufficiently patriotic in the struggle against communism, and in particular, the Soviet Union. This work demonstrates how the end result was to consign the American radical left to irrelevancy.
