No Sense Of Decency: The Army-McCarthy Hearings: A Demagogue Falls and Television Takes Charge of American Politics

by Robert Shogan (Author)

With a journalist's eye for revealing detail, Robert Shogan traces the 1954 Army-McCarthy Senate hearings and analyzes television's impact on government. Despite McCarthy's fall, Mr. Shogan points out, the hearings left a major item of unfinished business—the issue of McCarthyism, the strategy based on fear, smear, and guilt by association.
