Nick Fischer’s Spider Web: The Birth of American Anticommunism (University of Illinois Press) details how anticommunist myths and propaganda influenced mainstream politics in America, and how the right’s efforts paved the way for the McCarthyite 1950s and augured the conservative backlash that would transform American politics.
