The Life and Times of Joe McCarthy ePub and PDF Available
This is an excellent biography of the late junior senator from Wisconsin.Unlike some other portrayals of the man, this one, avoiding much mention of his personal life, attempts a dispassionately balanced account, accounting not only for McCarthy's fall, but also for those qualities contributing to his popularity.So doing, McCarthy comes across, subtly, as an almost tragic figure.

Meanwhile, what author Reeves terms 'the second Red Scare', that period spanning the late forties and fifties during which McCarthy rose to prominence, is outlined with enough detail to provide a meaningful context.This is not, however, a book about that period and those without some grounding in postwar American history will not fully appreciate it.

Frankly, I almost did not give this title five stars owing to the lack of intimate dirt on the Senator or his accomplices, particularly Cohn.McCarthy's alcoholism is mentioned, but his marriage is treated as virtually a political affiliation.Cohn's closeted homosexuality, central to the Army hearings, is only glancingly alluded to.While such avoidance made the text less entertaining for a prejudiced pinko like me, it did lend it a certain dignity which would make it inoffensive to even very conservative readers.
