United States. Congress. Senate; McCarthy, Joseph, 1908-1957


A study of the United States Senate's reaction to the activities of the late Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, of Wisconsin, based on the premise that the Senate, operating under its present rules of procedure, is both incapable of and unwilling to deal with demagogues within its midst. The nature of the censure that was reluctantly imposed upon Senator McCarthy was for only the most trivial offenses, lending support to the author's premise.
