The Great Question

Johnson, Gerald W.
August 1953
New Republic;8/31/53, Vol. 129 Issue 5, p13
The article discusses the political updates from U.S., as of August 31, 1953. The most conspicuous political development during the six months absence from the country of politician Adlai E. Stevenson has been the defeat of the hope that the election of U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower would mean the end of McCarthyism. Far from ending it; Eisenhower must fight to avoid being ended by it. The world knows this and so does Stevenson. He declared on returning to the shores that he was questioned more about McCarthyism abroad than any other subject.
