About this title:

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.

Book Description Navigator Pub., United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. From February of 1950 to June of 1954, the conscience of the United States was hijacked by a political movement known as McCarthyism. During that four and a half year period, countless Americans lost their jobs, their careers, their reputations, their friends, and their futures. America of the late 1940 s and early 50 s was permeated by anxiety over a growing threat to its national security. The brand of aggressive communism practiced by the Soviet Union and Red China, seemed to be winning the Cold War, as these mega-nations gobbled up smaller countries and exercised hegemony over their lands and populations. In this environment of tension, Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin gained tremendous popularity and power as he fanned the spark of fear into open flame, by insisting that America was undergoing widespread and systematic subversion by its communist enemies. History has come to regard this period as the Red Scare, when even ordinary citizens began to imagine communist infiltrators in every corner, and under every bed. There are very few chronicles of the campaign that presidential candidate (and then President) Dwight D. Eisenhower waged against Joe McCarthy and his methods. Eisenhower s battle with McCarthy and McCarthyism was little noticed and little known. This book is the story of that mostly invisible struggle. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781940397528
