ABSTRACT
article presents information on the book "McCarthy and the Communists," by James Rorty and Moshe Decter. Authors have marshaled the facts exceedingly well and it estimates Joseph McCarthy's, a U.S. politician activities as an anti-Communist with discriminating judgment. The criteria, which furnish the norm for, the estimate are clearly stated. Authors have made their investigation a very interesting and informative one. They show that McCarthy frequently failed to follow up leads which might lead to actual Communist corruption; that he never "pinpointed" his charges, contenting himself with innuendoes, references upon insufficient evidence and disclosures of youthful indiscretions of now vigorous anti-Communists.
