John Birch

A Life

Terry Lautz

  • The first authoritative study of the man who gave the controversial John Birch Society its name
  • Argues that the perceived 'martyrdom' of John Birch is a misguided view, propagated and appropriated by a right-wing political cause
  • Draws on a number of original sources, including Birch's love letters and a lengthy unpublished interview with him a few months before his death
