Summary "America's celebration of victory at the end of World War II was short lived. Rapidly escalating tensions with the Soviet Union helped spawn a new era of fear and suspicion as the United States sought to confront the threat of communism from both outside and within its borders. One man so vigorously (and recklessly) pursued Communists in the United States, that the era now commonly bears his name."--Publisher's website
