Summary
Sixty years ago political divisions in the United States ran even deeper than today. The Fear Within takes aim at one pivotal moment of that era: July 20, 1948 when FBI agents began rounding up twelve men whom the government believed posed a grave threat-the leadership of the Communist Party-USA. Scott Martelle's story is a compelling look at how American society, both general and political, reacts to stress and clamps down in times of crisis on the very beliefs it holds dear: the freedoms of speech and political belief
