"Probably no institution in American life has aroused more angry opposition or more fervent support than the House Committee on Un-American Activities. And few have reflected so symptomatically the changing political currents-from the last days of the New Deal to the waning of the Cold War. As Richard H.

It is a work that contributes greatly to our understanding of the American Left in the mid-twentieth century and also, to a slightly lesser extent, of the American Right."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
