Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 098186614X, Perfect Paperback)

This journalistic-memoir is both a poignant family story as well as a fascinating look at the effects of the McCarthy Era. Through interviews and research Gilgoff addresses the topics of activism and gender roles, cultural judaism, unions, and more. Interviewees include, Robert Meeropol, son of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and Tony Kahn, an award-winning broadcaster, author, and son of Gordon Kahn who was a blacklisted screenwriter. Along with a historical and cultural perspective, the book shows how children and grandchildren of the McCarthy Era, through organizations and personal efforts, are doing much to help others improve their lives.
