For five long years in the 1950s, Senator Joseph McCarthy and his anti-Communist crusade dominated the American scene, terrified politicians, and destroyed the lives of thousands of our citizens. In this masterful history, Haynes Johnson re-creates that time of crisis. Johnson tells this monumental story through the lens of its relevance to our own time, when fear again affects American behavior and attitudes.
Filled will half-truths and defamation. I find it appalling how those among us insist on rewriting history to fit their distorted view of what really happened.
The author is just one more small individual in a long line of small individuals who set their sights on greatness and hope to get there through the character assassination of an individual who outclasses them in every aspect of humanity. These small minded creatures glory in making false and malicious statements. They hope that you and I will believe their twisted, psychotic view history. They have lied to themselves for so many decades that the truth becomes whatever they say it is. Don't waste your time nor money on this - unless, of course, you are also standing in that long line of small individuals.
