The age of anxiety; McCarthyism to terrorism.


The age of anxiety; McCarthyism to terrorism.

Johnson, Haynes.



609 pages




Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Johnson (journalism, U. of Maryland) has written five best-selling books. Here, in part narrative, part political and social commentary, and part personal memoir he retells the reign of terror in the 1950s called McCarthyism and examines how it shaped the context for today's Global War on Terror. McCarthyism stands as a warning, he says, of what can happen when fears and anxieties combine to create hysteria in public and political life.
