I am reading Blacklisted By History by M. Stanton Evans, which I got through my connections at work (i.e. the Mobious Inter-University Library Loan).
While primarily billed as a book about Joseph McCarthy, it goes into very great detail about the politics of the Federal government, in particular the State Department, going back to the early 1930's. I am something of an amateur Cold War historian, and this book does a very good job of putting facts (many of which I already knew) into an overall picture of the times.
So much of what "everybody knows" about Tailgunner Joe and the Red Scare is simply not true, and provably not true. And yet it keeps getting printed as fact.
