ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The New American Right," edited by Daniel Bell. This concentration on McCarthyism gives the book a slight odor of being dated, although all the essays have been written within the last year. If the major thesis of the book is correct, however, then the "new right" that momentarily clustered around McCarthy may be a far more permanent force in body politic than the senator himself. The personal predominance of McCarthy and the concentration on anti-Communism were the superficial aspects.
