About this title


This remarkable document of an era that permanently changed the American political landscape offers firsthand accounts of the 20 years of anti-Communist repression instigated by the U.S. Government in 1947, during which millions of Americans were investigated. Arthur Miller, Alger Hiss, and Pete Seeger join more than 60 others to reveal how the hunt for the "disloyal" penetrated every rank of American life.


Red Scare is a vivid oral history of a time when subscribers to the Nation, devotees of foreign films, and even those who supported Franklin Roosevelt's fourth term came under suspicion of being Communists or fellow travelers, a time that Griffin Fariello likens to the Inquisition. The author talks with sources such as retired FBI agent M. Wesley Swearingen, who ferreted out suspected Reds in Chicago for nearly two decades; Harvey Matusow, a Communist who worked as a paid government informant; and blacklisted filmmaker Edward Dmytryk, who went on to direct Raintree County and The Caine Mutiny after enduring a government campaign of harassment.
