McCarthy reconsidered ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Republican Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin was not the first American to attack communism after World War II. The early events of the Cold War, the HUAC Hollywood hearings, and the Hiss-Chambers case caused many Americans to feel imperiled by the Soviet Union and by American Communists. Inflaming Midwestern resentment of Washington and the "Eastern Establishment" and old American fears of enemies within, McCarthy was able to manipulate the print media and to win approval from fellow Republicans, but his televised feuds with Edward R. Murrow and with the U.S. Army helped to bring about his downfall. Recently declassified intelligence information from both the U.S. and Russia indicates that Soviet espionage by means of American communists was more widespread than many historians had previously believed, but this does not justify McCarthy's activities. Includes comments by historians and journalists

History now ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What began as a sporadic and disorganized campaign against Coalition troops in Iraq has grown into an all-out battle encompassing military forces and civilians--both foreign and Iraqi. Car bombings, suicide bombings, assassinations, and kidnappings are the tactics employed by the insurgents to target the country's infrastructure, security forces, government officials, and ordinary citizens. But these methods are not new as we see in this history of the centuries-old tactics used by rebels through the ages, from 10th-century assassins to today. The make-up of Iraq's mushrooming insurgency is as varied as their tactics and actually consists of many splintered groups: Shiites and Sunnis, religious fanatics and secular Saddam loyalists, professional fighters and part-time troublemakers--all with their own agendas. All stepping up the pace of their attacks, and diminishing the hope for a democratic Iraq. The November 2004 Fallujah assault by U.S. and Iraqi troops is the most recent installment against the violence dominating Iraq since the end of official combat in May 2003. We investigate evolution of insurgent tactics and weapons, beginning with America's homegrown insurgency in 1776 and continuing through American experiences in Iraq, fighting a wide-scale urban insurgency. As Coalition Forces fight not only in Fallujah, but also in the Shiite south, we investigate the insurgents' ability to exploit media coverage
