Ordeal by slander by Owen Lattimore( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Joseph McCarthy was not yet a household name in 1950 when Owen Lattimore was labeled by the senator from Wisconsin as the "top Russian espionage agent in the country." Lattimore, in Kabul, Afghanistan, learned about the accusation a week later. Having already lost valuable time to rebut the smear, he succinctly cabled back that the charge was "pure moonshine" and returned to the United States to defend his good name. He soon dared McCarthy to utter his slander in a venue other than the Senate, where congressional immunity shielded him from lawsuits, but he refused to do so. Following a torturous Senate inquisition, Lattimore published this riveting book which he wrote in white-hot indignation. Judged at the time to be "a masterpiece of factual exposition [and] a social document of first-rate importance," this absorbing narrative chronicles how the ordeal threw Lattimore's life into perilous straits, and how he defended himself, while undermining the credibility of his accusers. In a battle for his very liberty, Lattimore prepared for the equivalent of an alley fight with the brawling senator. His supremely competent wife, Eleanor, was his trusted aide; along with attorney Abe Fortas they drew out of Lattimore's writings passages that would prove his loyalty. Yet, as a scholar who was accustomed to nuanced interpretations of current affairs, his accusers were able to conflate the same writings into a traitor's hidden agenda. Ordeal by Slander was the first great book to come out of the McCarthy era, and it remains a supremely topical book for today

Woodrow Wilson and the antimilitarists, 1914-1917 by Blanche Wiesen Cook( )
6 editions published between 1970 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this study is two-fold. It is primarily to explore the goals, personnel, and methods of the antimilitarists who sought to keep America out of World War I-- to maintain freedom and democracy in wartime-- and to frame a just and non-punitive peace. Second, it is to follow President Wilson's reactions to the antimilitarists at every stage of their activity, emphasizing such lessons as the anti-preparedness campaign, the mediation movement and the election of 1916. The antimilitarists who are studied here are the prominent social reformers who organized the American Union Against Militarism in 1915 and their agenda to maintaining America's neutrality. These antimilitarists were limited by their self-image and by a naive faith in the president's words. The members of the AUAM considered themselves respectable social critics and were reluctant to oppose the president. They were dissenters who frequently delayed their attempts to mobilize public opinion in the hopes that the president would act. Consequently, they failed to initiate an effective protest movement to keep America out of the war. When they realized the danger to American institutions created by war and the politics of deceit, they organized the National Civil Liberties Bureau, later to become the American Civil Liberties Union, in order to protect conscientious objectors, other dissenters, and to pursue more vigorously the work they started in 1914
