VIRTUAL TALK: Demagogue: “The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy” with Larry Tye
October 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$10.00
The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy
He’s been called the most dangerous demagogue in American history. Perhaps no other man has caused so much damage in such a short time. When Joe McCarthy finally made it to the Senate, he flailed around in search of an agenda. Finally, after three years, he hit upon one: anti-communism. By recklessly charging everyone from George Marshall to much of the State Department with treason, he whipped the nation into a frenzy of paranoia, accusations, loyalty oaths and terror. He destroyed many careers–even entire lives. When the public finally turned on him, he came crashing down, dying of alcoholism in 1957. With exclusive access to McCarthy’s personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings, bestselling author Larry Tye reveals the chaotic, meteoric rise and ultimate fall of one of the most influential and controversial men in American history.
