Why read it?
1 author picked The Age of Suspicion as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
Wechsler was the editor of The New York Post, a short-lived Communist and lifelong liberal, and a favorite target of McCarthy and McCarthyism. Wechsler’s razor-edged analysis of the era is the ideal counterpoint to McCarthy’s, and offers a lens into the scare’s flesh-and-blood victims.
From Larry's list on red scares in the USA.
