Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reeves (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. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Poorly researched and superficial

    This purports to be a straight biography and claims to be 'balanced.' Well, I was always opposed to McCarthy, but this is not a balanced book. It simply is not well-done--it is superficial even tho its author, a professor at a branch of the U. of Wisconsin, supposedly spent six years at the book. Except for finding for McCarthy on the Lustron affair, the book berates McCarthy for nearly everything else. Instead of being analytic, the book often pretends to convey fact with adjectives like 'ultra-conservative,'Far Right,' 'liberal,' all indicating an effort to analyze by label. If the author spent 6 years and did as poor a job as this, I suppose a decent job would take much longer. This book enjoys quoting secondary sources instead of primary sources. Just a small instance: there is a statement McCarthy inserted an item in the Congressional Record--the footnote cites, not the Congressional Record, but a book by somebody! This I find pure laziness on the author's part, and it show me Reeves is no scholar.
