Summary:
Anticommunist sentiment in American society after World War II resulted from a number of contributing factors: traditional anticommunist feelings inherent in the American character since the Bolshevist takeover in Russia in 1917, events in the international areca, expositions of communist infiltration in American society, and the manipulations of various politicians in the postwar period. A few politicians, including Joseph McCarthy and Richard Nixon, even achieved national recognition through their identification with it. This thesis is an examination of the utilization of anticommunism by these two men and an analysis of the extent to which it may have affected the dissimilar turns their two careers have taken.
