Editorial Reviews


"When Red Scare: Right-Wing Hysteria, Fifties Fanaticism, and Their Legacy in Texas was first published in 1985 it won the Texas State Historical Society's prize for best book on Texas History. Now nearly 30 years later, it has been republished by the University of Texas Press and still resounds with the ideas of political messaging, group think and the darker parts of our common history." - The Source "[Red Scare] studies the strident anti-communism movement of the 1950s, often referred to as the McCarthy era, and how it affected Texas." - Lubbock Avalanche-Journal "The reissue of Carleton's Red Scare offers a timely reminder of how the baiting of minority groups can be so destructive." - Austin American Statesman. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
