About
From a master of narrative nonfiction, a look at one of the most riveting subjects in American history.

It was a time of "blacklists" and purges of the "disloyal" from government, education, radio, television, the theater, and the Hollywood film industry. The pursuit of those responsible for stealing the "secret" of the atomic bomb led to the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and the name of Senator Joseph R McCarthy became a byword for character assassination and abuse of civil liberties, as un-American as the alleged crimes he investigated.
