Gaddis, The Long Peace, 37 The Red Scare Section Four by Noam Chomsky

Book Description

In this fascinating new interpretation of Cold War history, John Lewis Gaddis focuses on how the United States and the Soviet Union have managed to get through more than four decades of Cold War confrontation without going to war with one another.

Using recently-declassified American and British documents, Gaddis argues that the postwar international system has contained previously unsuspected elements of stability. This provocative reassessment of contemporary history—particularly as it relates to the current status of Soviet-American relations—will certainly generate discussion, controversy, and important new perspectives on both past and present aspects of the age in which we live.

Editorial Reviews

Coherent, learned, well written—and a reminder of just how changeable are the passions kindled by nuclear deterrence….[Gaddis is] an intelligent historian, and he combines theoretical reflection with a deep knowledge of the massive American archives….[These essays] constitute a unified history of the Cold War.

—The New York Times Book Review

With his customary insight and care, John Gaddis gives us important and illuminating essays that deepen and alter our understanding of Soviet-American relations.

—Robert Jervis, Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University

See Ward Churchill and James Vander Wall Agents of Repression (South End, 1988) The Red Scare Section Four by Noam Chomsky

Book Description

For those wondering how Bill Clinton could pardon white-collar fugitive Marc Rich but not Native American leader Leonard Peltier, important clues can be found in this classic study of the FBI’s COINTELPRO (Counterintelligence Program). Agents of Repression includes an incisive historical account of the FBI siege of Wounded Knee, and reveals the viciousness of COINTELPRO campaigns targeting the Black Liberation movement. The authors' new introduction examines the legacies of the Panthers and AIM, and shows how the FBI still presents a threat to those committed to fundamental social change.

[18] Robert J. Goldstein, Political Repression in Modern America (Schenkman, 1978). The Red Scare Section Four by Noam Chomsky

Publisher Blurb

Robert Justin Goldstein’s “Political Repression in Modern America” provides the only comprehensive narrative account ever published of significant civil liberties violations concerning political dissidents since the rise of the post-Civil War modern American industrial state. A history of the dark side of the “land of the free,” Goldstein’s book covers both famous and little-known examples of governmental repression, including reactions to the early labor movement, the Haymarket affair, “little red scares” in 1908, 1935, and 1938-41, the repression of opposition to World War I, the 1919 “great red scare,” the McCarthy period, and post-World War II abuses of the intelligence agencies. Enhanced with a new introduction and an updated bibliography, “Political Repression in Modern America” remains an essential record of the relentless intolerance that suppresses radical dissent in the United States.Robert Justin Goldstein’s “Political Repression in Modern America” provides the only comprehensive narrative account ever published of significant civil liberties violations concerning political dissidents since the rise of the post-Civil War modern American industrial state.

Editorial Reviews

Today, as politicians across the spectrum attempt to shred our rights in the name of ‘security,’ Goldstein’s book is an excellent resource, showing how calls for ‘security’ in the United States have historically provided cover for crackdowns on dissent.

Eric Ruder, Internationalist Socialist Review

[Goldstein’s] book is the most comprehensive study we have of political repression. Students of liberty — and its precarious status in our society — now have the full historical record for the modern era before them.
