Book Description:

Though fewer than 300 people had been identified as spies for the Soviet Union, a "Red Scare" erupted, leading to the prosecution, proscription, and jailing of thousands of people—individuals who represented no threat at all to the national security of the United States. In fact, it is arguable that the time and resources devoted to exposing and punishing "Reds" weakened internal security by tearing gaping holes in the fabric of society and culture.

About the Author:

Larry Ceplair is professor of history emeritus at Santa Monica College, CA.

Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Condition: New. 372 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.5in. x 1.4in.In the United States today, communism is an ideology or political movement that barely registers in the consciousness of our nation. Yet merely half a century ago, communist was a buzzword that every citizen in our nation was aware ofa term that connoted traitor and almost certainly a characterization that most Americans were afraid of. Anti-Communism in Twentieth-Century America: A Critical History provides a panoramic perspective of the types of anti-communists in the United States between 1919 and the collapse of the Soviet Union. It explains the causes and exceptional nature of anti-communism in the United States, and divides it into eight discrete categories. This title then thoroughly examines the words and deeds of the various anti-Communists in each of these categories during the three Red Scares in the past century. The work concludes with an unapologetic assessment of domestic anti-communism. This book allows readers to more fully comprehend what the anti-communists meant with their rhetoric, and grasp their impact on the United States during the 20th century and beyondfor example, how anti-communism has reappeared as anti-terrorism. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781440800474
