Review comments on 1st edition: 'Schrecker's extended interpretive essay on the nature of McCarthyism and the range of documents make this a great collection. The chronology, glossary, and bibliographical essay are particularly useful for undergraduate teaching. In this new edition Schrecker has done an excellent job of assessing the significance of recent Russian archival revelations, including Communist Party involvement in Soviet espionage activities, for our understanding of what we call McCarthyism.' - James R. Barrett, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 'This documentary collection, which draws upon recently released material from archives in Moscow and Washington, is indispensable for any serious student of one of the most troubling eras in American history. Schrecker's knowledge of the field is encyclopedic, and the historical insights she shares with her readers are powerful, subtle, and persuasive.' - Maurice Isserman, Hamilton College
