A Conspiracy so Immense (The Leather-Bound Library of American History) Hardcover – 1989 by David M. Oshinsky (Author) Review
One of the most fascinating, dense, detailed, and fair-minded accounts of the life and political career of America’s greatest demagogue ever written. I ordered this book after a friend lent me another book by Oshinsky (on Polio) which was also riveting. If political turmoil of the ’50s is a topic that intrigues you as it does me, you’ll find this very rewarding reading. I would have given it five stars except for the terrible typography. The book appears to have been badly photo-copied, perhaps from the original hardcover edition. The wavy, indistinct type in this book is a genuine deal-breaker — it actually distracts your attention from the amazing story of McCarthy and his cronies. I am appalled that the publisher, Oxford University Press, would accord a book of this quality such shoddy production. Shame on you. -Read Reviews-
Oshinsky presents a rather detailed look at Tail-gunning Joe. It is worth reading the detail.
