Synopsis: "A HOUSE DIVIDED: The Story of Ike and McCarthy" is the story of the political battle between President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin for the political leadership of the Republican Party and the moral leadership of the nation. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and the power-grab by the Soviet Union to elevate itself to the status of the world's foremost nuclear power, the deadly serious struggle between "Ike" and "Joe" played itself out from September of 1952 through December of 1954 amidst the machinations of larger-than-life historical characters such as Stalin, Churchill, Truman, Taft, MacArthur, Marshall, Nixon, Alger Hiss, Julius & Ethel Rosenberg, the Kennedys and Roy Cohn. The underpinnings of the Eisenhower-McCarthy political wars were Communist infiltration of the U.S. Government, the Korean War and the bruising anti-communist movement, later called "McCarthyism"--culminating in the raucus Army-McCarthy Hearings and the U.S. Senate's censure of McCarthy in 1954. The colorful characters and drama-filled events could alone have provided the stuff for a good novel were it not for the fact that it is all true.
