The territory is familiar, but Tuck proves that a few areas remain fertile fields for study.

Allyn Hunt
His examination, for the most part, is coolheaded, something that is welcome in today's vitriolic political climate...tightly packed, scholarly education...this book clarifies an important time.
Bill Bruce
...traces how a powerful and sometimes reckless, even deliberately deceptive media giant can team with a demagogue to damage individual lives and careers...Though the principal subject of McCarthyism and Hearst is 40 years in the ground, Jim's book reminds us that demagoguery lives...ignore it at our peril.
