³But more importantly, Fried reveals the wholesale effect of McCarthyism on
the lives of thousands of ordinary people, from teachers and lawyers to
college students, factory workers, and janitors. Together with coverage of
such famous incidents as the ordeal of the Hollywood Ten (which led to the
entertainment world's notorious blacklist) and the Alger Hiss case, Fried
also portrays a wealth of little-known but telling episodes involving
victims and victimizers of anti-communist politics at the state and local
levels.²
