McCarthyism remains all too relevant today; if nothing else, it reminds us that we cannot take our basic freedoms for granted. This audio course aims to provide a basic understanding of what happened during the Cold War red scare of the late 1940s and 1950s. It will look at this red scare from the perspective of both the victims and the perpetrators, and will try to answer the following question: How could such a politically repressive movement arise in a modern democratic society such as the post-World War II United States?
