30 editions published between 1971 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The testimony that the author has gleaned for this book from the thirty-year record of the House Un-American Activities Committee focuses on HUAC's treatment of artists, intellectuals, and performers. This collection of excerpts from the hearings shows with painful clarity how HUAC grew from a panel that investigated possible subversive activities in a "dignified" manner to a huge, unrelenting accusatory finger from which almost no one was safe. This book serves as a warning for the future and at the same time makes living documents out of history

Mother Courage is the play in which Brecht made his most passionate statement against war, but perhaps Brecht's greatest achievement in the drama lies in the creation of the character of Anna Fierling, nicknamed "Mother Courage," the itinerant trader who drags her canteen through the blood and carnage of the Thirty Years' War and whose fatal error is to believe that she can make the war serve her ends
