Many Are the Crimes: Mccarthyism in America

By Ellen Schrecker (NHC Fellow, 1994–95)

Persecution; United States Politics; Communism; McCarthyism; American History; Joseph McCarthy

Boston: Little, Brown and Co., 1998

From the publisher’s description:

From an award-winning McCarthy scholar comes the first post-Cold War exploration of the anticommunist witch-hunt and its devastating impact. Tracing the way that a network of dedicated anticommunists created blacklists and destroyed organizations, this broadbased inquiry reveals the connections between McCarthyism’s disparate elements in the belief that understanding its terrible mechanics can prevent a repetition.
