Summary
"Using case studies from Senate and House campaigns from 1946 to 1952, Bell shows how the anti-statist imagery that defined the Cold War became the political artillery that influential right-wing and business-interest groups used to discredit politicians who wanted to expand political and economic liberalism beyond existing New Deal measures."--BOOK JACKET
