Summary:
"What responsibilities does the Government have in protecting the country from foreign subversion? And by what constitutional and moral constraints must the government abide in carrying out this duty? In conducting her remarkably compelling research, Louise Robbins discovered government misconduct in its treatment of the Keeneys, but also another fat: they were indeed guilty of working with the Soviet Union to undermine the United States. Unlike many other accounts of McCarthyism, in Robbins' story, the alleged bad guys were indeed bad guys, Robbins has performed thorough and intensive research, and she presents her ideas with the precision and care of a true scholar. At the same time, she presents a human drama of ambition, misplaced idealism, self-righteousness, and intrigue that is worthy of a high-level detective story. And she raises important moral, legal, and political questions that liberal democracies must confront in dealing with enemies bent on their destruction.".
