In American Anticommunism Heale examines the various forms American reactions to this perceived threat have taken, from the attacks on workers in the Haymarket Riot to the widespread "witch hunts" of Senator Joe McCarthy.

This succinct and sensible history shows how fear of 'Reds' was linked in the nineteenth century to the destabilizing impact of industrialization and in the twentieth century to perceptions of global insecurity. An excellent concluding chapter explains the fading of anticommunism since the days of Senator Joseph McCarthy. * Foreign Affairs * Fair-minded and dispassionate... Ends with a detailed bibliographic essay which is a thorough and valuable addition to the literature for those studying the movement of ideas in American life. Graduate students casting about for a dissertation topic could well find the essay a rewarding exercise. * International Affairs *
