Senator Joe Mccarthy
By Richard H. Rovere
Harcourt, 1959, 280 pp

An appraisal of the late Senator from Wisconsin. No admirer, Mr. Rovere does have a lively and abiding curiosity about the man. While the book adds little new information to what was generally written and known during McCarthy's stormy passage across the political scene, it does contribute to placing this extraordinary phenomenon in some historical perspective.
