Many Are the Crimes : McCarthyism in America Paperback


The McCarthy era was a bad time for freedom in America.

Encompassing far more than the brief career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, it was the most widespread episode of political repression in the history of the United States.

In the name of National Security, most Americans--liberal and conservative alike--supported the anti-Communist crusade that ruined so many careers, marriages, and even lives.

Now Ellen Schrecker gives us the first complete post-Cold War account of McCarthyism.

Many Are the Crimes is a frightening history of an era that still resonates with us today.
