Format: Paperback
There are tons of blather, mostly from the bleats of the so-called intellectual class, that will forever bury the truth of Soviet subversion in the United States. They scream "witch-hunt," and the learned nod and scratch their chins, and imagine Lillian Hellman as a heroic figure. But, as Dwight MacDonald (no conservative) said, there ARE little witches. The Venona de-crypts, the testimony of the actual Soviet case-officers, the later confessions---all these things mean nothing to liberal myths. In this volume, brothers-in-law Buckley and Bozell (with an uncharacteristic lack of humor, but with a surgeon's scalpel) look at McCarthy's charges. From Moss to Lattimore, the dramatis personae and the evidence and the words of McCarthy's critics are laid before us. The conclusions are left to the reader; but the authors make a central point: nothing, EVER, said by McCarthy was as outrageous as those yawped by his critics. This book will inform those who have the Schrecker view of communism ("non-traditional patriotism"), the Appleton loyalists, as well as those who seek the facts. Recommended.

As a high school student, the leftist indoctrinaires they call teachers are eager to get at me and twist and misshape how I think especially when it comes to American history, and the issue of communism. Communist subversives, according to them, were very few and far between and therefore the fact that McCarthy made such an issue out of it, shows that he was drunk with the power that came along with his senate subcommittee and, according to them, he was a scoundrel, a demagogic liar, and an opportunist who ruined the careers of innocents. This book does a wonderful job of pulling the wool away from the eyes of the reader,(but then, of-course, it would, it is after-all written by the great William F. Buckley). The author very ably justifies the senator's actions, which leaves one wondering: if the Venona decrypts,(something which is unsurprisingly never taught in high school U.S. history), had been released at the time the book was written, Buckley's argument would have been completely iron-clad. 5 stars all the way.----------------- For those of you that have become obsessed with the story of this great American hero that has been unjustly vilified by the leftists which have rewritten our history, here is a list of other great books on McCarthy: -Joseph McCarthy: reexamining the life and legacy of america's most hated senator By Arthur Herman -McCarthy By Roy Cohn (who worked as his right hand man) -Blacklisted By History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy By M. Stanton Evans (most recent biography written around 2007) -America's Retreat From Victory: The Story of George Catlett Marshall By Joe McCarthy (the senator backs up his attacks on general Marshall who lost Korea and China to the communists, and paved the way for our loss in Vietnam)

17 of 28 people found the following review helpful By STEPHEN T. McCARTHY on March 18, 2007
Format: Paperback
In a very recent e-mail to an Ammyland friend (Aaron of Davis, California - this website's funniest reviewer in my humble, expert opinion) I recommended McCARTHY AND HIS ENEMIES: The Record And Its Meaning by William F. Buckley Jr. and L. Brent Bozell. Then I added: "I should post a review of Buckley's book on Ammyland, too, one of these days. But I'm always thinking: Who's gonna read it now? Old out-of-print book about a subject that everyone thinks is dead and decided." But the fact is that recently I DID submit a review for Roy Cohn's excellent book, McCARTHY, and I got to thinking: If I don't inform the public about these outstanding old books that sort out the myths and the lies of the liberal spinmeisters from the truth and the hidden history, who will? Should I wait for Al Franken, Al Gore, or Alan Colmes to do it? It seems al be waiting a very long time if I do!

Along with Cohn's aforementioned title, it was the extraordinarily well-docmented information in McCARTHY AND HIS ENEMIES that transformed me years ago from being just another sheep in the flock of American Sheeple (who assume that the broadly used but seldom understood pejorative catchword "McCarthyism" stands for some injurious black mark on the American psyche) into a well-informed but heartbroken fan of the most unfairly maligned and tragically heroic character in our country's history. Heartbroken? As I said to a different Pal not long ago in referring to my Ammyland review of the movie Good Night, And Good Luck: "When it comes to Senator McCarthy, my heart is in a perpetually broken state. I loathe what the powers did to him and his good name. ...

Book arrived in time and in excellent shape. It looks new. I haven't had a chance to read it yet but I know the two authors always do a great job in their writings.
