"America, please read this book."
"the greatest book since the Bible"
-Ann Coulter, Creators Syndicate
"It takes M. Stanton Evans's meticulous investigative journalism to show what Joe McCarthy's short stay on the national stage (a little under five years, from February 1950 to December 1954) really was about."
-Robert Novak, Weekly Standard
"So comprehensive is Evans's research that it will be a foolish historian who does not consult Blacklisted by History when a question arises over some person or event that comes into the McCarthy story."
-John Earl Haynes, co-author, Venona: Decoding Soviet Espionage in America
"This book will change forever how you think about Sen. McCarthy and the Soviet penetration of the U.S. government and society."
-Bob McMahan, Foreign Service Journal
"Evans goes through extensive files and transcripts with complete mastery of complex material and an engaging turn of phrase that makes more than 600 pages of painstaking analysis both a triumph of historical scholarship and a gripping detective story."
-David Ashton, The Salisbury Review
"Of the hundreds of books on the McCarthy era, Stan Evans has written the best—a nuanced, incredibly detailed work of scholarship."
-William Schulz, The American Spectator
"In this masterful instant classic, M. Stanton Evans sets out to tell the 'Untold Story of Joe McCarthy' and does so definitively."
-Jack Cashill, WorldNetDaily
"This is a master newspaperman at work: digging, interviewing the record, pulling apart and putting together the details of deeds done mostly by the politicians who ran our imperfect national government in the nineteen fifties."
-John Willson, Chronicles
"After combing through masses of declassified documents from Congress, the FBI, the State Department and other federal agencies, Stan Evans has produced a masterpiece of tru th."
-Terry Jeffrey, Human Events
"Evans, a veteran journalist, doesn't shout. He displays, instead, a deadly meticulousness that is, at last, overwhelmingly convincing."
-William Rusher, United Features Syndicate
"the most thorough scholarly examination of [McCarthy's] career"
-Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy In Media
-Wes Vernon, RenewAmerica.us
"monumental ... the result of six years of reading primary sources. Evans proves that almost everything about McCarthy in current history books is a lie and wil l have to be revised.... one of Reagan's old radio commentaries referred to Evans as 'a very fine journalist.' He is, indeed, but this book shows that he also is a Sherlock Holmes-type detective who chased every clue to find the truth and to write accurate history in elegant prose..... Everyone who henceforth writes about Joe McCarthy will have to check his facts with Evans' documented discoveries."
-Phyllis Schlafly, Creators Syndicate

Joe McCarthy(1908-1957) was the blue collar former judge and attorney who was elected as the junior senator from Wisconsin. McCarthy was abrasive and steadfast in his attempt to root out red weeds growing in the grass of the American meadow. McCarthy was felled and censored by the United States Senate. His charges of communist infiltration in the State Depart, US Army Signal Corp and in the China mission were not met with approval by the Eastern Liberal Elite. His name became anathema in the Truman and Eisenhower administration who prevented files from the White House being examined by McCarthy and his team of investigators led by Roy Cohn and a young Robert F. Kennedy. Evans was a strong conservative but I thought this book took an honest and extremely detailed look at McCarthy warts and all. My conclusion is that McCarthy was a patriot who called the nation to an awareness of the red threat in the early Cold War.
The book is not easy to read due to the extensive footnotes, long accounts of congressional fights and vast cast of historical figures to try to keep straight in your mind. It is, however, one of those books which linger in memory and it does provide a valuable counterbalance to the almost universal scorn for McCarthy in the academy. The book is an essential for any student of Joe McCarthy and his tumultuous times.
