Description
"The definitive biography of the most dangerous demagogue in American history, based on first-ever access to his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently-unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings."--,Provided by publisher.
Description
From 1950 to 1954 Joe McCarthy destroyed many careers and even entire lives, whipping the nation into a frenzy of paranoia, accusation, loyalty oaths, and terror. When the public finally turned on him, he came crashing down, dying of alcoholism in 1957. Tye shows that McCarthy was a tireless worker and a genuine war hero. But his ambitions knew few limits, and neither did his socializing, his drinking, nor his gambling. When he finally made it to the Senate he angered many with his lack of integrity. After he hit upon anti-communism as his agenda, McCarthy became the most influential and controversial man in America. His chaotic, meteoric rise -- and sudden fall from fame -- are charted through access to his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings. -- adapted from jacket
