Reds by Ted Morgan

In a lucid rethinking of McCarthyism, Morgan examines the long arc of America's attempts to come to grips with the Russian revolution from its first days, when U.S. expeditionary forces briefly fought the new Bolshevik regime, through the genuine growth of Soviet espionage in the 1930 and '40s to Sen. Joe McCarthy's cunning exploitation of facts, half truths and lies.
