Communism and McCarthyism in Cold War New York

Phillip Deery

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Gives readers a glimpse into the personal turmoil that six individuals--a doctor, a writer, a composer, a lawyer, and two professors--faced in an age of "intolerance and repression."
  • Clear, fluid prose offers an accessible window into the human costs of McCarthyism.
  • Situates these stories in their broader historical context to move beyond the common "victim histories" and offer a nuanced explanation of what caused this suffering and how it fits into the political trajectory of the 40s and 50s.
  • A fascinating snapshot of political persecution in mid-twentieth century America.
