From Library Journal:

The story of McCarthyism on campus is the subject of Ellen Schrecker's acclaimed No Ivory Tower: McCarthyism and the Universities (LJ 8/86). Holmes centers on one specific instance of the sensational era. In 1953 scientist Novikoff was fired from the University of Vermont for Communist activity during the turbulent 1930s. Holmes recounts his fate and future in an often fascinating narrative that is an excellent case study of McCarthy's attack on campus intellectuals. Though the early chapters are slightly redundant, the text often reads like fictional intrigue. An important book on a significant chapter of American history. For most libraries.
