From the Publisher
"...the aim of this colume is entirely on target. It shows, again, why women and gender matter. This text provides an easily accessible overview of how new scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality has transformed the old story of the twentieth-century Cold War and the domestic Red Scare."
—Kirsten Delegard, Western Historical Quarterly
"This book is clearly written, admirably concise, and well situated in the secondary literature on gender and conservatism and the foreign and domestic Cold War. . . Brennan's study offers another valuable reminder that niether Joe McCarthy nor June Cleaver can stand as convenient shorthard for our historical narratives of the Cold War era."
—Journal of American History
"Mary C. Brennan’s book will please instructors of history and political science courses who are searching for conservative voices to add to the cannon of scholarship on U.S. women's activism. . . This book will help libraries (and instructors syllabi) strike a better balance between the history of liberal feminism and conservative female activism in the United States."
—Erika Kuhlman, H-Net Reviews
"...[Brennan] does address the specificities of racial and class differences with regard to the anticommunist movement, and she provides a useful overview of the Cold War for a general audience. Summing up: recommended."
—M.L. Brunner, CHOICE Magazine
