This excitingly readable biography will be remembered...a complete page-turner.— Publishers Weekly
BooknewsReeves (history, U. of Wisconsin) maintains that common portrayals of Joe McCarthy as amoral and ruthless ignore the figure's intelligence, religious conviction, and generosity. He feels that McCarthy's activities as a communist hunter should be placed in the historical context of the Cold War and the Red Scare of the time. A reprint of the 1982 Stein and Day edition.
