    Perhaps the most reviled figure in American history is Senator Joseph McCarthy. "McCarthyism" has become the term of choice for false, destructive accusations. Yet a new book shows that Senator McCarthy was right in his allegations. Blacklisted By History: The Untold Story of Senator Joseph McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies by M. Stanton Evans, chairman of the Education and Research Institute, shows that McCarthy was right about there being significant communist infiltration in government, his investigative methods were careful, thorough and of the highest standard, and his adversaries were the ones who practiced so-called "McCarthyism." It is McCarthy,...

    About the Program M. Stanton Evans argues that Joseph McCarthy does not deserve the bad reputation he has been assigned by historians. Mr. Evans says that McCarthy was correct in his assessment of the threat posed by Communists in the United States during the so-called "Red Scare" and that his detractors knowingly covered up the extent of this threat.

    BookTV website ^ | 1-13-07 | BookTV staff
    This is a "headsup" for a couple of books being covered on BookTV (C-Span2 weekends). I'd say these two books fall in the general category of "fighting the savages". The Night Stalkers is written by Michael Durant, the downed helicopter pilot held captive by Aideed during the "Blackhawk Done" incident. The "Becoming Charlemange..." book sounds like it might be an interesting coverage on how Europe was stictched together.

The author also produced "Last Stand of The Tin-Can Sailors" about Taffy 3 (Battle of Samar). The links below are for other WWII and Cold War topics that might be interesting.

    This is a "headsup" for reviews of interviews on selected Civil-era War books on BookTV this weekend. (links to summaries of presentations will be posted in post 2). The "Generals In Bronze" segment is a rebroadcast. I saw an earlier airing. It is about a sculptor that got many Union Army generals to "dish" wartime details they'd never disclose to the public. If a more sensational editor had produced the book, it could easily be subtitled "Union General Confidential". I haven't seen the other two presentations, so I can't speak about the books or authors.
