Editorial Reviews


"Red Scare was first published in 1985. Its message is very important in this day of groups thinking others are unpatriotic and wanting to do away with traditional values. Differing opinions do not mean others are un-American and the book makes that point very well." Jerry Turner --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent, well-researched and well-written book about a dark era in Texas politics. Governor Shivers asked the Legislature to pass a bill making a belief in communism a capital crime. The various villains and heroes are described in interesting detail. Maury Maverick Jr. and Sr. show up as heroes. The only thing that seemingly restrained the fascist impulse in Texas were the federal courts. As much as I am a cynical political sophisticate, some of what is documented here surprised me.
