Revisiting the 1950s Red Scare – A Book Review and Interview

October 18, 2019

The Story of One Trade Unionist's Struggle Against Almost Everyone

Raymond Caballero, McCarthyism vs. Clinton Jencks (Norman, OK, University of Oklahoma Press, 2019), 320 pages, $29.95 (paper).

Just when books about the history of Communist trade unions seem to have waned, Portland historian Raymond Caballero brings to life the horrors of the Second Red Scare in the 1950s through an account of the trials and tribulations of Clinton Jencks.

My review is attached along with an interview I did on Radio Labor (www.radiolabour.net). It was also on www.rabble.ca.
