Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The tactics of the House Committee on Un-American Activities mesmerized the public and created a political fervor now known as "McCarthyism"Aalthough Sen. Joseph McCarthy did not serve on this particular investigative committee. Artists took a strong interest in the proceedings, particularly since many of their own were called upon to testify or were objects of suspicion. Murphy (English, Univ. of Connecticut) explains the social, political, and historical contexts of the McCarthy era, providing riveting slices of testimony and examples of its often stunning after-effects. She also gives a detailed overview of the hearings that pertained to literary and show business figures. In response to the hearings, dramatists and screenwriters produced a body of work (including The Crucible, Joan of Lorraine, and Galileo, among others) either directly about the hearings or rife with analogous references to the atmosphere of the time. Murphy discusses these works in relation to their individual historical content and in terms of their references to McCarthyism. For students of this era and those concerned about the impact of politics upon art, this is essential. For libraries with large scholarly arts collections.ACarol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield, NJ
