Demogogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy


This definitive biography is based on the first-ever review of his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door congressional hearings.

Also, here's some compelling history related to Wheeling from "McCarthy’s speech to a group of Republicans in Wheeling on February 9, 1950, launched the 1950s 'Red Scare', giving McCarthy a national platform that he would not relinquish for four years."
